The making of Punica granatum
The project aims at creating an art product reproducing a pomegranate (punica granatum), one of the oldest known edible fruits in the Mediterranean Basin, as it was shown in ancient art. With its symbolic positive message related to the idea of fertility, abundance and longevity, it can represent both a lucky charm and an evidence of the cultural involvement of a food-jewellery brand made in Italy.
