As part of the historical review of a past event that has marked European history, the For.Al group has performed a symbolic goldsmithery ring with CAD techniques in three-dimensional graphics alongside traditional techniques and endings.


"The item – explains Mrs Elena Piccioni - has features related to classic goldsmithery and digital sculpture. The stem designed in wax adopts essential lines; (according to the cost of gold) it was made by fake gold while the head of the ring ends with the two meetings hands. Through this work students from the goldsmith district of Valenza wanted to show the reunification of the two Germans and their extension over the ruins of the wall ”.
