Since the ancient times people observed and, later, used the night sky in order to orientate, a process which enabled them to cross mountains and seas and to arrive to the furthest parts of the world. The Bussola Collection adds a technical use to the jewellery pieces and pays a tribute to two major constellations used for celestial navigation. The first one is Orion, which includes some of the brightest and, thus, more visible stars of the night sky. The second one is Ursa Minor, which includes the Northern Star or Polaris and is easily located by spotting Ursa Major.
