    Franco Cannilla, Mario Masenza: Franco Cannilla (1911-1984) was a Sicilian sculptor who was approached by Mario Masenza (1913-1985) in the late 1940’s to partner in creating artists jewels in Masenza’s shop in Rome. Masenza came from a long line of Italian jewelers. His store, located in the Palazzo Fiano, included the Italian Royal Family amongst its clients. Masenza wanted to offer original and unique pieces to his clients, so he collaborated with rising Italian artists. The collaboration between Masenza and Cannilla continued until the late 1960’s. Cannilla first displayed his jewelry in an exhibition in Milan in 1949, and his work was featured at many other jewelry and design exhibitions around the world, including the International Exhibition of Jewellery in London in 1961.
