Exhibition at Pitti Palace

Until the 23th of September 2007 in Florence, at Pitti Palace (Museo degli Argenti) there is "Babetto 1967-2007".The exhibition traces the artistic career of Giampaolo Babetto from his beginnings up to the most current works: a fascinating and rich production recounted through pieces of particular prestige that bear witness, not only to his sophisticated work as an artist goldsmith, but also to the more recent experience connected with the production of interior architecture.
This retrospective is a truly important opportunity both to celebrate an artist of international fame and to confirm the attention of Florence towards artists capable of expressing themselves with an absolutely contemporary language, albeit not devoid of explicit and cultured references to our artistic and architectural tradition.

Thus Babetto has managed to make his own the forms of Pontormo, and in a less evocative manner has taken ample inspiration from classicism.

After Florence the show will move on to the major European sites, to end up finally in Rome.

Giampaolo Babetto is an important member of a small but very influential group of contemporary goldsmiths who have been making authentic contributions to the development of their craft. His jewelled creations are always characterized by a sense of great delicacy, sustained by an exemplary technique
