From the skycrapers of “The City Rises” to the fusion in a milanese historical foundry

posted in: Craft, Culture, History | 0


Giovanna, the famous bell founder Ermanno Barigozzi's daughter, lives in Milan in 1820 but she was mysteriously catapulted to odern times. She fells lost and she no longer recognizes her beloved district called Isola,where she finds only very high buildings, all glass and steel. To return to the past, she needs a powerful talisman, but only a group of ancient goldsmiths will be able to forge the magic jewel that will allow her to get back to her life in the past.
Giovanna needs your help, do you want to join the group?
Artès Marilena
Marilena, in the role of Giovanna, will involve you in the discovery of Porta Nuova district and then will take you to another era, between foundries and workshops of goldsmiths in Isola district, where you will learn to make your own jewel with the assistance of a Lombard masterjeweller.
