The only one in Italy for jewellery were the Owners are All Artisans-Artist. Born in Florence in 1998, an Association dedicated to the teaching of the Culture of Jewelry. A group of Professionals of this sector decides to found Perseo to fill in a large gap left open by public and private schools. Until then, the teaching of he Arts concerning Jewelry and all the activities that form Jewelry was normally confided to persons who were good managers of any Vocational School but from the artistic point of view, they had little or no personal experience in working in a jewelry workshop. Therefore, there grew a necessity for those who wished to bring the young in contact with all the expressions that form Jewelry, to recreate a Bottega Artigiana (antique workshop) in Florence, which has for centuries been a birthplace of the best traditions of this Art. In this Bottega we turn to think of Jewelry as true and personal creations which are thought, designed, and produced by the hands and the head of the persons who know from direct experience working at the workbench, step by step. Respecting the most classical Jewelry, the owners of Perseo wish to bring to light to the Students how to acquire, step by step, the techniques to think, design, produce, set stones, and engrave pieces worthy of the best form of Art in the Goldsmithery Sector. Every owner of Perseo has been, for a long period of time, one of the best Artist-Artisans in their own specific sector: the experience accumulated during years of Professional work becomes transmitted to Students in the courses with the suitable amount of time to prepare them to become the best future Artisans. Goldsmithery, Stone-Setting, Wax-Casting, Engraving, and Jewellery Open Work courses all include courses in Design and Gemmology. This becomes scholastic material, but with the intention of passing the major portion of hours in front of the workbench.
