The Museo del Gioiello opens in Vicenza. It is the first time in Italy. The charming location, in the Palladian Basilica, a building dated sixteenth century, makes it even more enchanting. Nine exhibition halls accommodate 400 jewels of different ages and cultures. It is possible to visit Etruscan jewelry, neoclassical and luxurious contemporary jewelry.
