Artisan Rome

Artisan Rome

Rome is nothing if not impressive. The scale and density of the city’s ancient monuments, Baroque architecture, and public works of art provide a feast for the eyes, but they also overshadow the city’s unjustly overlooked artisan workshops. Traditional workers of metal, marble, ceramic, glass, and other media are tucked into neighborhoods across the Eternal City. Memorable discoveries and a powerful, palpable connection to the past await those who take the time to discover these unsung masters.

The Boscoreale Treasure: Political Power and Precious Refinement

Together with our partners at Milestone Rome, we raise a glass to the legendary collection of silver, made by Roman artisans 2,000 years ago. This ancient treasure is one of the highlights of the Louvre Museum, and also served as the inspiration for the eponymous silver collection by Manimenti's Claudio and Roberto Franchi.
