About your host

I'm an artist and master jeweller, art lover and food passioned, I still haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do when I grow up, meanwhile (since 1982) I design jewels and I like teach jewelry-making. In 2013 I was appointed Master of Art by Tuscany Govt. I always like meeting new people, find new inspirations, sharing my knowledge... and telling stories about my work and my city.

What we’ll do

We'll meet for a welcome coffee in a bar with a beatiful and secret garden. Then we reach my small creative workshop (2 minutes walk) where I'll teach you, step by step, how to create a jewel using the technique of cuttlebone casting. This ancient technique, already known by the Egyptians more than 2000 years ago, is one of my favourites and it's easy to learn. The cuttlefish bone is easy to carve…

Where you'll be

We meet in a bar easy to reach from the train station or the Central market. I love the beatiful garden of the bar because it's very quiet and relaxing, the best place to know each other. After the coffee we will go to my lab where, after my teaching, you will create your own souvenir from Florence!
