An interview with Giovanni Corvaja

Gold is Giovanni Corvaja’s passion. He works it with the skill of a Renaissance master and the inventiveness of a fearless scientist. Corvaja’s workshop, in the medieval hilltown of Todi in Umbria, is the laboratory – cum – art studio where he creates. There, he invents his own processes and combines them with traditional and space-age techniques, often using tools he designs and makes himself. Corvaja succeeds in transforming precious metal into beautiful objects and jewels of fur, sponge and weavable "linen" threads – feats never achieved before. Pure, precious, golden-light, his artworks are simply breathtaking.

Giovanni Corvaja, Goldsmith
&
Paula Weideger, author and journalist specializing in the visual arts including jewelry

This conference will be in English with simultaneous translation into French.
