What you'll do

During the visit you will be shown the ancient original tools, the wheels, with which crystal is cut, sanded and polished and the different manufacturing processes from grinding to engraving. You will witness the making of the pieces of our collections as well as the restoration of precious objects. You will have the chance to see our artisans at work and discover the techniques that have remained unchanged throughout the centuries. You will see all the objects (goblets, candlesticks, vases, cups, glasses...) signed by Locchi and perhaps decide to purchase a piece of crystal to take home.

Learn more about Giovanna

Giovanna

I have been part of the family business, the Moleria Locchi, for over 30 years.  In recent years my son Matteo has joined me in the fascinating world of crystal manufactoring and together we design new objects to offer to our customers, always following traditional and artisan manufactoring techniques.

Where you'll be

The visit will take place entirely within the bottega: from the rooms where our artisans work to the showroom where you can find all the Locchi objects.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Please make sure you do not enter the bottega with bulky backpacks or bags.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
