To remember and honour the identities of the women that inspire us and whose stories we wish to celebrate, we have named each piece of jewellery after a female pioneer at the forefront of Italian history.
The name of this piece pay homage to Franca Viola who was the first woman in Italy to refuse a 'rehabilitation marriage' following a sexual assault in 1965, which would have negated the perpetrator’s crime. Instead she chose to press charges and succeeded in prosecuting him. Her courage and resilience led to a subsequent change in legislation. Viola has since become a symbol of social progress and the emancipation of women in post-war Italy.
