The project bases on the concept of Dialogues among the members of the two associations, specifically each artist have sent counterpart an image related to the artistic culture of his/her own country as inspiration material for the creation of a piece of jewelry. Their creations have been exhibited in several places between Japan and Italy such as the Italian Cultural Institute in Tokyo, Kofu Prefectural Museum of Art (Yamanashi), Museum of Mediterranean Natural History in Livorno, Cominelli Foundation in Cisano di San Felice.

At the end of exhibition each participant can donate his or her own piece to the Japanese/Italian colleague and vice-versa, as a memory of this cultural exchange.
