HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

At Ponte Vecchio's Casa dell'Orafo, in a location with a strong Renaissance touch, in the same monastery where the Medici family wanted to bring together the Florentine goldsmiths.
Between mergers of gold and pure silver, crucibles, cuttlefish and chisels, we will show you some of the secrets of the 'Florentine goldsmith's art in a simple and original space, creating with our guidance the thin rings of a hammered chain, as it happened over 2,000 years ago.
We will try to hand down the passion, the art and tradition, the creativity of Florence, the industriousness of its people, the history that has made this city and made it unique in the centuries.
A simple, authentic and original location, a place that has not changed over the years in the furnishings and tools which, as in ancient times, are used to create and restore jewelry and art objects.

The artisan tradition, the restoration and creation of jewelry are the core of our business.
A heritage that fascinates and it's renewed everytime.

SOME TIPS

Get ready for having a look at the shining precious stones, surrounded by gold and pure silver, crucibles and gravers.
The emotion will be great and if there will be some children, you will see their eyes brighting.
It is possible to agree upon a different time from that specified.

WORKSHOP

TAILOR-MADE DRAPERY

Rossella, tailoring

96

Creating the drapery is an art. It is an ancient technique that derives from the necessity to cover up themselves. It has evolved during time, continuously improving, becoming a real discipline to build a paper pattern. It is seemingly easy to do it, but it actually hides a series of specific rules that are essential for the construction of a successful and perfect paper pattern. We will design an article of clothing together and we will try to drape it. This will be a way to get to know the basic drapery knowledge. If you really are curious though, I suggest you to become yourself the mannequin. You can thus observe through your drapery how the article takes shape on your body. This is so by choosing the movement and the lines. This is a unique experience to understand how the fabric can change your shapes. It is all up to the way the draped fabric is used.

GOLDSMITHING AND WEAVING

Negar, goldsmith

Goldsmithing and weaving are two of the oldest forms of craftsmanship in the history of Man: combining these two arts in one "discipline" let you to create jewelry that are truly striking. During the tour you can discover the various forms that the texture of a fine thread of silver can take: tubular, modular and regular shapes that are so close to perfection, or some more organic and irregular creations that have a more human “touch”. In our showroom you can see and touch the jewelry collections Aracne and Atena (it is no coincidence that they are referred to the the greek myth) where these "paintings" are transformed into earrings, rings and necklaces. Later, visitors will enter the lab where they will see in practice how to create the silver wire and how it is woven.
