The Gocce Bowl from the Boscoreale Collection is inspired by the eponymous collection on display at the Louvre Museum, an exceptional example of silver from antiquity discovered in the area of Pompeii and adorned with lush figurative details of skeletal and floral motifs that relate to the ephemeral nature of life. Here, the Franchi workshop reinterprets this legendary collection with a contemporary, geometric aesthetic that maintains the thematic integrety of the works in allusions to organic forms. Gocce, Italian for "droplets" takes its name from the fluid form of the impressive bowl.
