In 1967, Lucio Fontana collaborated with jewellery and editor GianCarlo Montebello, who together, produced four designs: the Elisse Concetto Spaziale (Cut bracelet) in two configurations (LF3 and LF4); and the Anti-Sofia necklace (LF1) and Anti-Sofia bracelet, of similar design (LF2). The Elisse Concerro Spaziale bracelets differ in design with LF4 bearing his signature slash on the face of the cuff and LF3 perforated with Fontana's signature puncture marks. Realized simultaneously these works operate in conversation with one another, a unique representation of a larger monumental practice.


The first editions of all four items were made in silver in quantities of 200. These editions were not signed or numbered, and were not conceived as 'precious' jewels. In contrast, the second editions were numbered and signed. Intended to be an edition of 150, the Elisse Concetto Spaziale bracelets edition run was never fully realised, a similiar fate meeting the intended edition of 30 Anti-Sofia bracelets with only a few made of each. Since the death of Lucio Fontana, in keeping with the Foundation’s policy, no more pieces have been made, thus making the few in existence rare and precious examples of Fontana's jewellery making.
