La Scala Theatre

If I think back to the huge emotion I felt while setting foot for the first time at La Scala Theatre of Milan, I feel like crying!

Zeffirelli handed me the task of making the stage jewels for Don Carlos. It was the first time that I engaged at the opera house and I had to deal with dynamics and techniques that were completely different from those in cinema.

I was used to tiny dimensions, which were then zoomed in with the camera, but now I had to create different jewels: large enough, but without being excessive.

The most exciting thing is that I designed the jewels of this opera in the laboratories of La Scala in Milan!
