In many ancient cultures, gold became a symbol of immortality and power thanks to its non-corrosive nature.
The ruling classes thought gold for its rarity and aesthetic qualities and consequently used it to demonstrate power and status.

In the field of jewelry, gold was a popular material, notable for its malleability. Some cultures of the antiquity took the art of goldsmithing to its climax in terms of techniques and inventiveness.
In this lecture, Tosca Ruggieri explores the creativity and skills of goldsmiths from the ancient world through different gold treasures. Join us on this journey taking you from the Hellenistic world to the Anglo-Saxons.
