Manifattura Tabacchi SOCIAL DISTRICT
A new meeting place for the residents and business that make up the micro-entrepreneurial fabric around Manifattura Tabacchi, where they can get to know each other and begin a new form of socialising.
Creazioni Ghii is a jewellery brand set up by Elisa Canzi in 2013.
Elisa is a young jewellery maker who discovered her passion at an early age and already has 10 years of experience working with materials such as bronze and silver: bronze for its warm and comforting light, silver for its softness and malleability.
As part of the community that makes up Manifattura Tabacchi’s Social District, Elisa presents her work and explains where she finds the inspiration to create ‘stories that you can wear’.
After taking a course in jewellery making to develop her artistic streak, Elisa’s ever-increasing passion led her to set up her own brand, Creazione Ghii, in 2013.
Her pieces tell stories, with images pressed into the materials.
“I have always had a need to express myself, to find new ways of speaking. I’m not good at drawing and so I looked for something material, solid, something with roots.
I found metals, bronze and silver, which become soft and enveloping until they merge, and yet still remain strong. I have found a way of telling stories which otherwise I would never have found the words for. Stories that you can wear, these are what brought me to set up Creazioni Ghii.”
