This year’s exhibition is called "Metamorphoses: Reshaping the Stars" emphasizing on the multilateral role of jewelry and the particular importance it can have for every single individual. Jewelry as a means of inspiration, art, history, symbol, message, product, business, co-operation, but also as an expression of emotion, relationship, memory, moment, beauty, sparkle, self-confidence. Jewelry as a desire and celebration. A celebration, which will be experienced by Zappeion's visitors along with a number of events and activities.
