On August 19, the Museum of Art and Science, located in the Marina Bay Sands resort area, opens an exhibition on the theme of the snake as a complex and contradictory symbol, which has instilled horror, awe and awe in humans since ancient times. The evolution of the image is built in chronological order - from ancient relics and artifacts, for example, Roman amulets and Chinese statues-guardians of tombs, to masters of modern art and photography, depicting a snake in their own way.

The exhibition was complemented by the Enrico Coveri dress, created in collaboration with the artist Niki de Saint Phalle, the costumes from the movie "The Last Emperor" by Bernardo Bertolucci, the original dress of Princess Turandot from the 1926 production at the New York Metropolitan Opera.

The Serpenti Form exhibition was curated by the Bulgari Heritage Department and its head Lucia Boscaini, so Serpenti jewelry has a special place here. The jewelery pieces - including flexible tubogas bracelets and a snake head necklace - come from Bulgari archives and private collections.
