New Functional Experiences for Italian Jewelry

What if precious jewels could help us live better lives? Wearable Italia and Totwoo have already laid the foundation for transforming Italian gold arts into a technological and functional experience

On 21 September 2016, the “Crafting the Future: Stories of Craftsmanship and Innovation” show debuted at Milan’s Mudec Museum of Culture. And it was curated by the unforgettable Franca Sozzani, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. The exhibition was an attempt to create a dialogue between technological innovation and craftsmanship, for the purpose of producing a base for modernized Italian excellence, making it even more captivating. In this context, Wearable Italia made its debut. The result of a partnership between an IT Technician, Andrea Tomassini, and a fine-jewelry designer, Roberto Ferlito, this start-up was one of the first to offer such an ambitious project. We are talking about smart jewelry, or rather, jewelry that, in addition to having refined shapes and materials, holds technological characteristics. Andrea and Roberto met in 2016 and decided to transform a purely Italian product into something innovative. How? By giving it a functional soul. This all started with the “wearable device” market.


Wearable Italia was selected as a finalist of Amazon Launchpad Award of Premio Gaetano Marzotto 2017.

ProdigIO brings Italian luxe to statement smart bracelets

This limited edition line of smart jewellery tracks steps and keeps you safe Fluid, Plus and Contrarié are a trio of intelligent bracelets by the Italian fashion tech startup Wearable Italia. Founded in February 2016 by IT engineer and CEO Andrea Tomassini, the limited edition ProdigIO collection aims to blends hidden technology with Italian luxury.

"We chose to call this line ProdigIO because of its double meaning: on the one hand the adjective highlights the line's beautiful and extraordinary dimension; on the other hand the digital side is evoked by the number 10, discreetly contained in the collection's name, referring to the binary numerical system typical of computer language," said Tomassini.

This is not Wearable Italia's first project: "The first thing I built was a robot. I wanted to understand IoT and the possibilities that technology can offer." A year later the entrepreneur moved on to creating smart bracelets and now runs a five person team which is responsible for building everything from the ground up. "Everyone knows, and understands, their role at Wearable Italia and this is important," said Tomassini. "We all have the same goal, to build a product that respects Italy and technology".
