The exhibition SerpentiForm, promoted by “Roma Capitale-Sovraintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali” is curated by Lucia Boscani, Bulgari’s Heritage Curator, and by the Brand Department Heritage of the Maison.  As a symbol of seduction, rebirth and transformation, the symbol of the snake has merged for centuries within the history of Humanity, grasping the imaginary both in the East as in the West. Since the antiquity, the ability of the snake as an animal able to renew itself and to change its skin, to keep its contact with the earth and at the same time to elevate  itself, to   sinuosly enroll or to fight some predators, eliminated all myths and legends inspiring the artistic production in many fields.
In the exhibition there are some ancient jewels coming from Pompei, from the Archeological museum of Naples, the creations Serpenti of Bulgari’s historical Archive, the contemporary works of art, the photos and the artistic illustrations, the vintage, the theatre and the cinema dresses, the design objects. The various aspects of a new  to be interpretated in a realistic way each time more realistic or stylised, emphasizing the powerful symbolc way or the sinuosity and the grace.
