Emblematic jewels from the Bvlgari Heritage Collection capture the excellence in craftsmanship, the taste for colour, the sumptuous shapes and rounded lines that are today hallmarks of the Bvlgari style.

Pieces formerly in the collections of Elizabeth Taylor, Gina Lollobrigida, Ingrid Bergman, Anna Magnani and Audrey Hepburn illustrate the predilection of movie stars from the legendary Dolce Vita epoch.

As an elegant counterpoint to the jewels, the haute couture dresses from Cecilia Matteucci Lavarini’s private collection give a vivid feeling of the tastes and trends of the various epochs in which the Bvlgari story has unfolded.
