The show

As part of the Piedmont Region project "The essential is Baroque", Palazzo Madama presents the exhibition Precious Silver, set up in the Atelier Room from 2 July to 15 November 2020. The exhibition, curated by Clelia Arnaldi di Balme, offers a selection of silver works from the collections of Palazzo Madama and traces the history of silverware in Piedmont from the early eighteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century.

 

The journey begins with an illustration of the techniques for processing the precious metal, ductile and malleable, and the control systems established by the Savoy court in order to guarantee the buyer the value and quality of the products. The oldest Piedmontese legislation dates back to 1476, but the edict of 1677 which strictly regulates the activity of the University of Goldsmiths and Silversmiths of the city of Turin and establishes the figure of the state taster . It is an official in charge of certifying the title of the alloy with a trademark, i.e. the quantity of silver present in the metal with which each object that comes out of the city shops. Reading the silversmiths' punches and tasting marks brings out the refined personalities of masters who mark a line of taste of absolute originality in Piedmontese production of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
