ManualMente 2015: Precious Crafts

Again this year, FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano (Italian National Trust) will be presenting "ManualMente", which in 2015 is dedicated to the "Precious Crafts" of goldsmithing and the crafting of jewellery with semi-precious stones. For the occasion, Villa Necchi Campiglio will host an exhibition dedicated to the finest creations of master jeweller Alfredo Ravasco (Genoa 1873 - Ghiffa 1958). Among the pieces shown, there will be numerous triptychs, including the precious Triptych in lapis lazuli and coral. On the same days, the Villa’s tennis court will hold the now customary Christmas market, where it will be possible to admire and buy the jewellery and objects on display.
