Eneide is a jewellery brand born in 2010 in Mexico and carefully created by Vittoria Curcio. Every product had the italian touch, but also the extremely valuable and respected mexican craftsmanship. The products are all hand made therefore their quantity is limited, many times they can even by a unique piece; all hand made by local artisans.
Eneide represents sacrifice and happiness within a long voyage, just like in the work of the known poet Virgilio; a voyage that today reaches a new destination: Italy. It is a story based on discoveries and adaptation. We breath and we nurture from the place that hosts us.
Eneide is a precious work written by the known poet Virgilio, that narrates the story of Enea, trojan prince, son of Anchise, that after the fall of his own city, vagues into the mediterranean. The essence of Enea is the one of its hero that searches a new beginning, holding its most precious asset in hand; the capacity to resist, hope and to reinvent himself.
Eneide is a story of a hero that encounters many obstacles but without ever discouraging himself. A hero that holds his father, therefore his past, and holds by hand his son, meaning his future. A hero that represents the every day man, a character with many different feelings, gifted by a strong resilience.
Sempre devi avere in mente Itaca – raggiungerla sia il pensiero costante.
Soprattutto, non affrettare il viaggio; fa che duri a lungo, per anni, e che da vecchio metta piede sull’isola, tu, ricco dei tesori accumulati per strada senza aspettarti ricchezze da Itaca.
Eneide is epic and it represents reality, it tells the story behind migration: the need to search oneself within a new Itaca. When one begins a journey, one should hope to find fertile soil, new experiences and adventures. One should never fear to encounter monsters along the road because if feelings, thoughts and spirit become the ones to guid the journey, one will never encounter success.
To reach Itaca “oneself” must be the constant thought, but without rushing the journey, because it will enrich you of treasures along the way. Itaca therefore, will never disappoint you if you arrive there with patience. It is only throughout the path, that one will understand what Itaca truly means. Much like in the jewel, where each one represents the story of a path, Vittoria’s path and of her journey that today reaches a new destination: Italy.
This is Eneide: we carry on our back what we were, and by hand what we want to become. A continuos journey that is made of discovery, growth and changes. An italian project that takes in its hands that son that has to grow. A journey between the italian traditional craftsmanship, that is fading away, and the design of the innovative jewel that defines an iconic style.
