Designer and Goldsmith Researcher.
Carla Riccoboni approaches goldsmithing through graphics and design.
The underlying theme of her research comprises a focus on a sign, a rhythm, and writing. This focus is executed through refined geometric sequences as well as with the purposes of reviving ancient repertoires, such as Venetian paths (of Arabic-Byzantine origin) reflected in the VENEZIA Collection and the traditional symbols of the Vicenza prints of the MADREFORME Collection.
A pioneer of the self-produced jewels, in 1987 she began commercial production of her Collections.
From 1998 to 2002, the goldsmith trading company, Auritalia, distributed her collections throughout the world.
In 2007, Carla, along with Nadir Stringa, upon the closure of the workshop Angelo Tovo of Vicenza, recovered approximately 2500 madreforme from certain destruction. Madreforme are the basic equipment needed to realize the “printed”, a type of work typical of the region since the war to the 1980s. From the study of this material, the MADREFORME Collection is born. Carla Riccoboni lives and works in Bassano del Grappa (VI), Italy.
