My favorite artist of all time, Andy Warhol once said, “I always visit Bulgari because it is the most important museum of contemporary art.”
He couldn’t have been more poinyent, because it’s absolutely true. Bulgari is a brand that has transcended time, art, culture, and fashion with their incredibly iconic and historic high jewelry pieces.
So, it’s absolutey fitting that the de Young Fine Arts Museum in San Franciso will host and kick off the Art of Bulgari exhibition of La Dolce Vita & Beyond 1950-1990,. starting Sept 21, 2013 and will display till February 17, 2014.
One display, one can expect to see 150 pieces of Bulgari’s finest creations, which spans over forty years from 1940-1990.
This Incredibly exclusive exhibition showcases jewellery
that defined a pivotal period in Italian design, and includes several
famous pieces from Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman and, perhaps most
notably, Elizabeth Taylor.
Those of you who are inspired by art, culture, fashion history and jewelry and it’s impact an high society must visit this very cool exhibition in San Francisco. All the details are below for you.

The de Young is

the 17th to the 21st centuries; art from Oceania, Africa, and the
Americas; a diverse collection of costumes and textiles; and
