Bvlgari has been synonymous with Cinecittà and Hollywood glamour throughout its 135-year history. From Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra to Sharon Stone in Casino, Bvlgari and its magnificent creations have starred in over 40 films from the Dolce Vita years to today. Representing the rich history of Bvlgari’s Roman roots, the following two short original films further Bvlgari’s connection to cinema while bringing cultural issues to light in a contemporary way.
Bvlgari has enlisted filmmakers Nina Meredith and Bella Monticelli to create two short films inspired by the resilience of women. Created in collaboration with Tribeca Studios, and premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, both films focus on modern Italian women pursuing professions generally held by men.
