The concept behind this project was conceived by the Italian Exhibition Group with the aim of creating seven imposing monoliths arranged in the entrance square of the Vicenza Fair. Each monolith symbolizes a decade of the fair's history, metaphorically representing its transformation from its industrial beginnings, focused on machinery currently present in the T.GOLD section, to its current prestige in the luxury and jewelry sector.For this reason, the edition's slogan is "The Heritage for Tomorrow," eloquently emphasizing the growth of the event over the years and consolidating it as one of the most relevant B2B fairs in the global jewelry landscape.

Manaly created the seven imposing monoliths using different materials. Specifically, three are made of sheets of dark marble, gold, and silver; another three are composed of D-Bond gold mirror, silver mirror, and satin-finished engraved gold; and a particular monolith is composed of crystal drops fixed to a metal mesh. To complete the group, one has been added featuring the engraved and backlit celebratory edition logo.These seven monoliths have been replicated in smaller sizes and distributed in each pavilion, where they are placed on platforms with adjacent informative lightboxes that delve into the history of each decade.

Manaly effectively translated the project from both a structural and engineering standpoint; they proposed valid solutions, accompanied by clear samples and technical drawings. Despite tight deadlines, they managed to deliver an excellent result and adhere to the schedule.
