Carla Riccobini & Piergiorgio Cremasco
"She knows it, controls it and manages to reverse it by casting it into her jewellery. Above all she neither gives in to flattering technologies nor traditionalism. Instead, like Janus, the two-faced deity, she looks simultaneously at the past and future in a masterly alchemy of movement.
And there lies her "Italian spirit", the patrimony and weight of an age-old heritage of beauty, materials and techniques that Carla solidly evokes as she works within the territory, bringing the ancient Vicenza prints from Madresforme collection back to life, the bonds of Bassano tradition, the rich engravings of Venetian or Byzantine architecture."
