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.
