Bulgari has been named the official jeweler of the Tribeca Festival of independent film. At the 2018 edition, which has just ended, the Rome-based Maison premiered two short films celebrating women, which were produced in collaboration with Tribeca Studios.
Having agreed an exclusive three-year partnership with the Tribeca Film Festival, Bulgari has become the official jeweler of this unique cultural event. Founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, Tribeca focuses on storytelling in all its forms, through film, virtual reality, music and online work.
Since it was founded in 1884, Bulgari has nurtured close ties with the world of cinema. Its creations have been worn on screen by stars including Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and Sharon Stone in Casino. From the “Dolce Vita” years to the present day, Bulgari jewels have featured in no less than 40 films! Through this partnership, the Maison is celebrating and reinforcing its ties with cinema. To mark the occasion, it has developed two short films directed by women in collaboration with Tribeca Studios. Both spotlight Italian women and the ways in which they challenge convention.
The documentary Conducting a Revolution, directed by Bella Monticelli, describes how the passion and determination of Speranza Scappucci made her one of the most influential orchestral conductors on the international stage.
The film The Litas, directed by Nina Meredith, tells the stories of three women – a police officer, a filmmaker and a motorbike aficionado – who all belong to the The Litas, a club for female motorcyclists.
