A celebration of Bvlgari’s Italian heritage, from its early days as a family-run business in Rome to its presence today as a global luxury brand. The show-stopping jewelry comes from private collectors and Bvlgari’s vaults, and is enhanced by a dazzling selection of couture garments from the personal collection of Cecilia Matteucci Lavarini. The curatorial focus? Bvlgari as the embodiment of an Italian school of jewelry. The exhibition inhabits two venues, Castel Sant’Angelo and Palazzo Venezia (Via del Plebiscito, 118, 00186), within easy walking distance of each other. Tickets for both must be purchased at Castel Sant’Angelo. —L.J.
