This is the story of my activity of recovering an old warehouse from which I got the vintage materials for my creations!
"In Bologna there are people who have in their DNA the conservation and recovery;
Annarita Vitali, graduated in Urban Planning with the Arch.tto Cervellati, always active for the recovery of historical centers,
he pursued, working on his own, after a collaboration with the Artistic Exhibition Agency and the Gallery of Modern Art, of recovery, aimed at the jewel and its creation.
Everything comes from the purchase of the old "Furlanetto" warehouse.
Founded in 1925, detected with all the ancient materials, and revived with the artistic creations of Annarita Vitali in 1998.
The company, founded by Romeo Furlanetto in 1925, produced fashion accessories, sold internationally, and collaborated with leading stylists, including Valentino, Chanel and Balenciaga of which he was the distributor for Italy ... just to name a few.
At the early death of Romeo Furlanetto, his wife Maria, a Calestani of Casalmaggiore, took over.
Here it had its headquarters, the oldest and most important production of jewels, called 'mad gold', as not entirely valuable, starting from the second half of the 19th century.
It was in fact here that the gold-plated plate was invented, a gold-plated plate, which had enormous success all over the world.
The industries that produced accessories, but not only, joined together, continuing the activity until the '70s.
Everything would have been lost if in 1998 the bijoux museum had not been created, which tells with more than thirty thousand pieces the story of the evolution of the bijoux, which follows very quickly
the evolution of the historical period and its trends.
Just in 1998, at the close of the Furlanetto company in Bologna, Annarita Vitali, after two years of cataloging the materials, began to produce unique pieces with vintage materials, precisely those purchased from the aforementioned company.
In an early 1900s villa, unique thematic pieces are created, all rigorously made with vintage materials.
These are thematic jewels, because they are recurring themes, not just in the world of jewelry but present in many types of art, architecture, iconography, poetry, literature, etc.
An interesting anthropological and social analysis reveals the reasons for the tendencies ... for example the shells, the first ornament of the man, which cyclically, but could be said seasonally emerge, heraldry, the naturalistic themes, etc. "
Annarita Vitali Nasce a Bologna il 17/02/51. Dopo la maturità classica si iscrive al D.A.M.S dove si laurea in Storia dell' Arte nel 1974 facendo una tesi in urbanistica con il Prof. Cervellati, forse l'unico architetto al mondo che genialmente ha anteposto la conservazione del patrimonio urbano e la sua riqualificazione all' espansione disarmonica o peggio se possibile all' abbattimento del paesaggio urbano.
"La conservazione e I' evocazione del passato, la storia di cio' che è stato, soprattutto nelle piccole tracce della vita umana, esercitano sempre su di lei una profonda attrazione". Dopo una collaborazione con la galleria d'Arte Moderna in occasione della sua apertura dove collaborò a biografie di pittori come Pizzirani, Fiori, e alla mostra di Saetti e una precedente collaborazione con l'Ente Manifestazioni Artistiche inizia una attività fortuita nel campo dei bijoux che ben presto diviene una vera e propria piccola Azienda con dipendenti interni ed esterni.
