URBAN INTELLIGENCE //
BENEDETTA DUBINI'S ROME

Jewellery Designer Benedetta Dubini’s love of art and design was born at home in Italy, where she grew up surrounded by imagination and style. Theatrics and fashion run in her family –Dubini’s grandfather owned cinemas while her grandmother performed on screen. Now London-based, Dubini’s Empires Collection –available at JOSEPH at 77 Fulham Road— takes inspiration from Roman and Greek History; playfully delighting on ancient stories and myths whilst tapping into the rich history of Italian craftsmanship.

Naturally, Benedetta doesn’t let too much time elapse between visits home. When in Rome, here’s where she heads for food, fun and to draw inspiration from modern art and bygone eras.
