To celebrate Bvlgari’s "Magnifica" jewelry collection, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II di Milano has been transformed into a catwalk, a concert hall, and a runway movie set where AMO created a video direction for the brand. 

Symbolizing the rejuvenating energy of Bvlgari’s jewelry creativity, an ingenious use of light and color set the stage in front of Milan’s iconic architecture.

In manipulating scale and time, the show creates a mutually reinforcing encounter between the splendors of fine jewelry and architecture.

"We conceptualized the production as an interplay of the lyrical and the mechanical," said OMA Partner Ellen van Loon. 

"We wanted to create scenes that resonate with the design of fine jewelry, as much as the artisanship behind the scenes," she said. 

Bvlgari’s Summer 2021 fine jewelry show marks AMO’s first collaboration with the brand.
