The archive is composed of countless documents, paper sheets of a thousand of stamps, realizations on objects and italian silversmiths, photographic prints, about 2300 negatives on vitreous plate and roughly 300 paper drawings of Giovanni Valli, historical designer of the BVLGARI.
In 2010, the daughter of Costantino Bulgari, Anna Bulgari Calissoni, offered the whole collection to science of formation, human science, and intercultural communication departments in Arezzo (University of Siena).
Nowadays the collection is preserved in the goldsmithing history and technique laboratory (Lab. Or) of the department, the restoration work was managed by Cristina Merelli under the scientific supervision of Prof. Paolo Torriti, professor of modern art history and manager of the Master’s degree in the history, design and marketing of the jewellery.
In March 2019 ended the first phase of the work that involved the direct intervention on 37 folders from the archive. The intervention was made possible thanks to some sponsors who financed the entire initiative: Giovanni Raspini Spa, Quadrifoglio Spa, Mariella Bertoneri.
