Oroarezzo is synonymous with Made in Italy jewelery. In Arezzo from 5th to 7th May Italian excellence is on show
Goldsmiths in Arezzo means 1,200 companies that give life to the so-called Aretino Goldsmith District. From this reality Oroarezzo takes place, an event dedicated to the Italian goldsmith sector, which this year will be held from 5th to 7th May, at ArezzoFiere.
The Premiere Contest is back
Organized by the Italian Exhibition Group, Oroarezzo returns this year, for its 28th edition, with a new theme for the Premiere 2018 contest: “The bracelet”. The Premiere Contest is the competition dedicated to the latest in design and new goldsmith trends – which every year aims to recognize and award the best expressions of the goldsmith’s tradition and art in Italy. The Jury, chaired by Beppe Angiolini, art director of Oroarezzo, and composed of experts in the fields of fashion, jewelry, printing and communication, will examine and evaluate the creations proposed by the competitors, and the selected creations will be exhibited during the Fair inside a special installation at the center of the exhibition space.
Exhibition and business opportunity
The Arezzo event is planning numerous initiatives and activities aimed at enhancing and promoting Italian goldsmith’s excellence, also offering an important support to business and the possibility of exchange and contact between professionals. The event, which has a total area of 8 thousand square meters, reserves great space for the exhibition, offering participants the ideal areas where they can show and highlight the new collections for the general public but also meet and receive Italian and international clients and buyers. These elements make Oroarezzo, which in the 2017 edition registered over 25,000 visitors, a real networking engine capable of enhancing its product and creating contacts. And the figures are clear. The event awaits the arrival of over 500 top international buyers, coming from 60 countries (80% comes from abroad), thanks also to the organizational and logistical support of Mise and Ice. A real guarantee for the success of Made in Italy in the rest of the world. Data and numbers that make the Arezzo trade fair one of the most important trade fairs for gold, jewelery and silver sectors, thanks also to the national trade fair platform for jewelery and events (managed by IEG). Its importance is also witnessed by the participation of the productive excellences of all Italian goldsmith districts: from Vicenza to Valenza, from Torre del Greco to Florence and Milan.

The four-day goldsmith event has, among other things, a study day scheduled for Monday, May 7th , which will involve experts, researchers and university professors. This is the “Precious Metals in the History of Science and Technology”, seminar – organized by Tca / Precious Metals Refining – that will deepen the theme of the goldsmith’s art and the recovery of precious metals.
