- A recent royal NFTs project based on Italy’s House of Savoy is waiting to make a market debut on the 150th Italy’s Unification anniversary.
- The NFTs will tell a story of the royal house’s heroic efforts in helping many globally.
Recently, the artistic film director Yi Zhou talked about her upcoming royal NFTs featuring Italy’s last reigning royal family, the House of Savoy. These NFT cards will be the first royal NFTs in the market featuring the last queen of Italy, Marie-José.
During the interview, she expressed her dedication to the Italian royal family that contributed to the unified Italian republic. She worked with the non-reigning Prince of Venice Emanuele de Silvio to make the project a success.
The House of Savoy played a significant role 150 years ago in unifying Italy, with the help of three other notable names, including the well-known activist Giuseppe Mazzini. Queen Marie-Jose is also known for her increased contribution to the global community during the second world war. Additionally, she helped with the Libyan Red Cross and played a card in helping against Mussolini, the Italian dictator.
Shortly after taking power, the queen had to abolish the monarchy, introducing the Italian Republic. The royal NFTs will roll out during the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification on March 17.
The royal NFTs to feature in Zhou’s metaverse
Ms, Yi Zhou is a known name in the film industry, including her involvement in significant financial and philanthropic works. She is a model, an artist, a director, to mention but a few. Her step to create the royal NFTs and a metaverse based on the same concept is her way of paying homage to known royals in the past.
She has been in Italy for a long while, getting well-acquainted with the country’s history. She mentioned that her long friendship with the Prince of Venice is a vital inspiration to her art. Furthermore, she believes that non-fungible tokens are the coming future of the art industry.
Her mission is to provide exclusive NFT cards while recreating notable spaces associated with the characters. However, this project will not be the end of her venture into NFTs as she plans to incorporate her future works in her metaverse. Moreover, she added that her metaverse would be a growing universe encouraging extensive exploration into the art world.
NFTs contribution to the art industry
While Yi Zhou’s royal NFTs are pretty different, they are not the first NFTs to enter the art industry. These tokens are reshaping the art industry as a more lucrative commodity, offering security and scarcity. Additionally, they are the next step of introducing real-world situations into the digital assets space.
So far, more blockchain platforms are easing into the idea of non-fungible tokens to revamp user experience. Known blockchain games like Axie Infinity are offering the ERC-721 tokens as tradable assets from in-game loot.
As it stands, NFTs are the closest approach towards achieving tokenization of traditional markets. They also stand to be a strong future for the world economy, employing blockchain features and limited supply; hence, introducing value to many assets worldwide.
