The Museo del Gioiello (Jewelry Museum) in Vicenza is the first in Italy and one of the few in the world dedicated exclusively to jewelry. It is definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in the area during the afternoon (3pm-7pm). This unique 450 sq.m space, designed by Patricia Urquiola, is housed inside Vicenza's Basilica Palladiana, which recently inaugurated its second exhibition edition (2017-2018). An artistic project curated by 10 new international curators which highlights the culture of the area and aims to promote the fabric of jewelry production that has made Vicenza the ‘capital of jewelry'.
