September 7, 2011. Visitors look at jewelry exhibited at the Bulgari 125 Years of Italian Magnificence show in the National Museum of China, in Beijing, China. The National Museum of China is hosting another luxury brand exhibition after Louis Vuitton’s controversial show in June as businesses court the world’s fastest growing market for luxury goods. The ‘made-in-Italy’ retrospective exhibition, which is held for the first time in Asia after Rome’s Palazzo delle Esposizioni in 2009 and the Grand Palais in Paris in 2010, shows more than 600 pieces of jewelry, watches and other precious objects from different eras of the brand’s design since founder Sotirio Bulgari opened his first shop in Rome in 1884.
