Laboratorio GrandTour

GrandTour products are completely handcrafted. Ancient traditional techniques and experience in the creation of hand made jewels passed on through the years have had a fundamental role in the realization of our collection.

Handcrafted objects have an unquestionable importance at both aesthetic and cultural level which since the Renaissance in Italy, have contributed to the development of a tradition of workshops of a very high international standard.

Il Settecento rappresenta un periodo storico ricco di scoperte e nuove conoscenze, e una rinnovata curiosità e ammirazione verso il passato. In questo periodo l’Italia, e soprattutto la città di Roma, vissero una stagione unica e divennero un modello di riferimento a livello internazionale. Moltissimi studiosi, artigiani, giovani, curiosi e appassionati, giunsero in Italia da ogni parte dal continente per conoscere le vestigia della classicità, la cultura, la politica, i costumi e apprendere le arti. Questo viaggio culturale aveva il nome di GrandTour e il clima di scambio e d’interconnessione che ne scaturì, ispirò generazioni di artisti e fece nascere molte scuole e le prime accademie d’arte. I viaggiatori spesso acquistavano come ricordo di questa forte esperienza, oggetti e opere d’arte, creati da artisti italiani e stranieri che, insieme alle botteghe di tradizione artigiana, studiavano le opere più famose dell’epoca, creando nuovi capolavori neoclassici e delle incredibili varietà di oggetti d’arte.

The journey has just begun……

Our atelier, where we create and handcraft Grandtour, is located on Via dei Coronari in Rome, at only 100 meters from Piazza Navona. Our front window is surrounded by a large jasmine plant and we look out into a stunning fountain dating back to 1500, which is located at the center of a small square called piazza San Simeone. The building where our atelier is located goes back to 1500, named palazzo Salimei, it was purchased by Pope Sisto V in 1585. A floor of white wood adorns the entrance to the gallery which houses antique furniture and paintings of various eras from past to present.

The display cases, which exhibit our collection to the public are reflected in a large ornamental mirror, framed by carved wood, golden in color and dominant at the rear of our premises . Although there may be limited space to circulate, our premises are characterized by a very enticing and inviting atmosphere . Our clients can admire all the art while waiting to begin their own Grandtour. We have always taken the time to interact and talk with people who wander in, about the beauty that Rome has given us with its many years of history, and how it has provided us with emotions which, no matter how many times relived, are always as fresh as the first time we made our discoveries.

Over time we began to think that we could immortalize these moments by creating of them wearable objects. Grandtour thus was born as a sort of reminder of the journey, of the moment, as we remember moments when looking at a photograph.

Just a few steps away from us there are many small characteristically Roman trattorie which hurriedly prepare their tables and remind passersby that it is almost time to indulge in some special refreshments. We have often spent time with our clients, sharing an aperitif or a lunch together while the colors of the sunset have served to light up the facades of the ancient buildings around us, providing us with a magnificent backdrop as only this eternal city can.

Thanks to your much appreciated visits, we are delighted to share this great fortune. Buon Viaggio……. (have a good trip)

GrandTour Collection – Classica

GrandTour Collection Orecchini 

L’eleganza di una misura contenuta, una forma essenziale, rotonda, sospesa con leggerezza. Orecchini che s’indossano con naturalezza. Un sottilissimo uncino sostiene gli intagli e ogni movimento li farà muovere, creando riflessi di luce e di colore. Il castone di bronzo, chiuso sul retro, enfatizza questo effetto.

Dioniso, Bacco

Dio del vino e dell’estasi viaggiava su un carro trainato da tigri e al suo seguito fauni e satiri e baccanti.
Le feste celebrate in suo nome erano libere e sfrenate, le sue sacerdotesse, le baccanti ballavano in preda all’estasi.
