The Professional Jewellery School Perseo, conceived and founded in 1998 by Fabio Sieni and Massimo Campaioli, organises and runs training, specialisationand refresher courses on themes and subjects relating to jewellery and goldsmithery.

The school has its premises in Florence, a city that has always been identified with art. The home of artists and craftsmen who have made it famous throughout the world. The teaching method, tested and refined since 1998, allows excellent results to be achieved in relatively short periods.

All the courses are designed to guarantee everyone adequate training for their needs, with many hours of lessons, all conducted by well-qualified teachers (craftsmen, artists, designers and professionals). The school is promoter of the Prize annual ‘Perseo School’.

THE PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL ” PERSEO “: The only in Italy for jewellery where 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 the 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, Jewellery Open Work, Design, Gemmology. This becomes scholastic material, but with the intention of passing the major portion of hours in front of the workbench.
