“Fewer, better things” (in the words of Glenn Adamson), an approach consonant with UN Sustainable Development Goal 12, “responsible consumption and production” and embodied the work of Giovanni Corvaja. Born in 1971 in Padua, Italy, this extraordinary goldsmith and jeweler began work in metalsmithing at 13 with Francesco Pavan and Paolo Maurizio. In 1988, he was awarded the Diploma di Maestro d’Arte, and in 1990, the Maturità d’Arte Applicata. In 1990, he enrolled at the Royal College of Art in London to further his studies of art jewelry, returning to Padua upon graduation in 1992 to pursue his artistic career in goldsmithing.

His breathtaking work, the embodiment of responsible practice, has been exhibited internationally since 1989 in numerous solo and group exhibitions and at major art fairs, and is featured in major collections.
