Convenient Location in Florence:
Our jewellery school is located near Palazzo Pitti and Piazza del Carmine, 15 walking minutes from the Central Station and the famous Florence Dome in the heart of the "Oltrarno", since the Middle Ages the "district" of the handicraft workshops of the city.
The neighbourhoods are quiet and safe, full of small restaurants and artist studios in the narrow streets and romantic "piazzas".
Alchimia’s staff of 10 teachers and technicians are all professional artists, designers, historians, or jewellers employed on a part-time basis so that they may continue to pursue the highest standards of achievement within their respective fields.
Each year the school also hosts numerous lectures, seminars, and workshops led by internationally recognized artists, designers, gallery owners, art historians and critics.
The school organizes exhibitions and participates in international events and fairs presenting the student’s work in order to give them contacts and knowledge about the various possibilities for their future profession.
