Our teaching methods, tested and refined since 1998, allow 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 & professionals). Respecting the most classical Jewelry, the owners of Perseo wish to teach our students how to acquire, step by step, the techniques to conceive, design, produce, set stones and engrave pieces worthy of the best form of Art in the Goldsmithery Sector.

School History:

Photo of Jewelry School in Florence, ItalyIn 1998, an association was established in Florence that was dedicated to the teaching of the Culture of Jewelry. A group of professionals of this sector decided 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.

School Facilities:

Located in the heart of the historic center of Florence, our school inherits the Renaissance spirit of the region. Home to artists and craftspeople who have made it famous worldwide, the Toscana region today is still rich in exceptional craftsmanship, and preserves a human dimension that attracts thousands of the young and not-so-young from all parts of the world. 

Our school premises are located at N°s 10 Via dei Rustici and have one big workshop, a gemmology classroom, and one classroom for design and theory lessons. The workshops are equipped like manufacturing workshops, and therefore have a sufficient amount of all the specific tools for all the students to work with, lost-wax casting ensemble, melting unit, two ultrasound cleaners and all necessary accessories and furniture.

Since 1999, the school has had specific gemological equipment at its disposal (microscopes, refractometers, polariscopes etc.) for its gemology lessons, as well as an extensive and constantly updated store of stones for study. We were the first school in Italy to boast such facilities.

The school offers to our own students free Internet connection, with net ADSL. La Scuola Perseo has also set up one of the most extensive Italian libraries dedicated to jewellery: our collection of books, manuals, catalogues and magazines come from all over the world.
