Dear Shaded Viewers,
I am in the beautiful city of Vicenza as a guest of Vicenzaoro, the largest exhibition of gold, hence the name, jewellery, silverware, watches and gemstones. A driver picked me up at the airport and drove me to the beautiful Villa Michelangelo in the hills of Vicenza. The first event was the Andrea Palladio International Jewellery Awards.
Gianni Zonin presented the boutique Dodo in London the award for the best flagship store
Gaetano Cavalieri presented Van Cleef & Arpels the best international Jewellery Brand Award
Just for an aside, Gaetano received a call from the IHT a while ago asking to interview him for the travel section. The reason being that he travels more than 1,000,000 miles a year. I ran into him a few months ago in the airport in Rome.
Afterwards we took a walk around the fair.
