Giulio Nardi (1897-1976), of Tuscan origin, founded his jewellery shop in Venice and enjoyed immense success throughout the world. His work is mainly inspired by Venice, inexhaustible iconographic source. He is mainly known for his "Moretti" or Blackamoor, brooches representing African princes whose faces are made of ebony and whose turban as well as costume are richly decorated with stones. The versions of this jewel are innumerable and highly sought-after by collectors. Melissa Gabardi, Italian jewelry in the 20th century, 2016, p. 38-39.
