Milano Jewelry Week returns, after the obligatory stop due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year in October from 20th to 23rd 2022.

About 200 events will animate high jewelry ateliers, goldsmith workshops, academies, schools, art galleries, fashion boutiques and design showrooms in the centre of Milan. From Brera to Porta Venezia, passing through the Duomo and Montenapoleone, countless areas of the Lombard capital are involved in the initiative. A calendar full of events according to thematic itineraries that will involve prestigious locations such as Palazzo Bovara, Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, La Pelota, and the most important goldsmith schools of the city with the purpose of creating a unique event of its kind capable of attracting attention to the world of jewelry both of the B2B and B2C audiences.

Over 500 exhibitors from 40 different countries (about 70% of the total from abroad), more than 8,000 jewels on display: these are the incredible numbers of an event that, through collective and personal exhibitions, galleries and international schools exhibitions, workshops, performances, temporary shops and award evenings, intends to provide a multi-faceted interpretation of the history and technique of the goldsmith’s art and to attract not only operators of the sector but also lovers of Beauty and Know-how.

Enzo Carbone – Founder of Prodes Italia, the company that created Milano Jewelry Week and manages the entire organization of the second edition – says: “Actually, for Prodes Italia, the stop of activities due to the pandemic was only physical, certainly not planning. These long months have indeed allowed us to study and work on new formats and develop new relationships. We are therefore enthusiastic to see how this event has matured and grown up and, above all, we joyfully anticipate a strong presence of visitors from abroad, who will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in 4 days dedicated to jewelry at 360°, made up of workshops, exhibitions, live performances and much more”.
