Seminario di gemmologia (Workshop on Gemology)
La ricerca dell’oro in Val Padana (The Search for Gold in the Po Valley)
For centuries, they produced false stones, with the attempt to make them look like real ones. Now, there seems that the trend has reversed: they become the true stones so that they look like those false.
“Gemstone is the quest for beauty in small things.” And there is nothing beautiful in falsehood, misrepresentation, vivisection, misinformation, ecological disarray, ignorance and fraud.
The DVD contains the recording of a gemology symposium held in Treviso. You can follow it in its multiple sessions.
My “Search for beauty in little things” made me look for (and find!) Gold along the rivers of the Po Valley. In the second part of the DVD, you’ll find a guide to this experience.
The “ORI e GEMME” workshop in Pavia and the site “www.oriegemme.it” are at your disposition in case you had any doubts or questions.
