Nicotra di San Giacomo
Back to Renaissance
Incredible jewels, for both men and women, are available at Alessandro Nicotra’s shop located in the vicinity of Campo de’ Fiori. Based on an old Renaissance technique, gold or silver filaments are woven into wefts and colours chosen by the customer.
The pride of production is the establishment’s “full knit”, gold or silver fabric, an ultra-soft, shiny metal fabric. The result are masterpieces of workmanship that meld in beautifully with the woven fabrics.
His cufflinks, bearing the engraved initials, need I say, of the customer for whom they were designed, are ultra-glam. Available in onyx, coral, enamel, tourmaline or featuring more classic precious stones, they are all unique, unrepeatable pieces.
Nicotra di San Giacomo is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.

To Give Oneself Work is the reedition of a performance realized by Juliette Roche last year at the Glasgow School of Art. Over many days, from morning until evening, the Parisian artist, born in 1987, occupies a space accessible to the public, organized like an atelier. She works there with wood and various materials towards a final exhibition which will conclude the performance.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
