It is too easy, with hindsight, to view the choice of studying languages, literature and oriental culture at La Sapienza University in Rome as another aspect of the love that Marta Giacomini has always nurtured for any form of art.
While the choice of studying oriental languages can seem to be geographically and in some ways sentimentally far off, even more distant it appears Marta’s imaginative and gifted idea for venting her artistic love – and we all know that any love hides a need and an obsession.
The artistic creations by MàGia (a shortened version of the name Marta, pronounced with a Roman accent, and the first letters of her surname, Giacomini) are unique jewels, designed to be pieces to wear not only as a decoration of the body, but to tell stories. In fact Màgia accessories, bags, capes, costume jewellery and fine jewellery (therefore suited to all purses) try to create a direct relationship with the person wearing them.
With an eye on the context of the story, also the result of her university studies and her passion for books and art, Marta
Giacomini creates small wearable works of art that can satisfy everyone’s need to express themselves as they deem best. From the project/design to realisation, these creations are entirely handmade, and make use of Marta Giacomini’s acquired skills, not just in the theoretical field, thanks to her love of literature, foreign culture, and the most varied imaginations, but also practically: Giacomini went to goldsmith’s School to perfect her skills and broaden her creative possibilities. MàGia accessories can really make magic happen: Calvino’s Invisible Cities (built on a beautiful ring), the face of Charlie Chaplin (on a necklace pendant), finally come out of the pages of books, or screens, to be worn.
