Our Workshop

The workshop is the most important place in each real Florentine workshop.

Peruzzi Brothers’ silver workshop is the symbol of our story where, for nearly 150 years, we are protagonists.
In our shop you’ll find many products, chosen carefully among the best Italian and international silver productions, but also our creations which, thanks to the design and to our craftsmen’s skilled hands, take shape to become jewels, home objects, cutlery, ornaments, sacred objects (link to the pages about products) 

Here some video showing different processing steps which everyday take place in Peruzzi Brothers’ workshop where the history of silver working continues the long Ponte Vecchio tradition (link to the video of production)

We can carry out, adapt and customize all kinds of silver objects, to make a Peruzzi Brother’ jewel even more unique, and all this thanks to the expert hands of our master craftsmen, ambassadors in the world of manual work, of Florentine excellence and creativity 

You can find Peruzzi Brothers’ silver creations, from 2015, in “Officine Ponte Vecchio”, too, the store on Ponte Vecchio, where some of the excellence of Florentine handicrafts have been selected. (link to officine ponte vecchio)

Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio is one of the symbol of Florence city and one of the most famous place in the world for shopping.

You can find, on Ponte Vecchio, the most important Goldsmith and silversmith shops in Florence, and just at the beginning of the Bridge, Palazzo Pitti side, you can find Peruzzi Brothers’ showroom and the workshops.
Since 1880 the company Headquarters has always been Ponte Vecchio.

It’s difficult to give a righ date to Ponte Vecchio birth , the current appearance is due, according to some historians, to Taddeo Gaddi Or Neri from Fioravante but the feature which makes it unique is surely due to Vasari work.

In 1565 Vasari, commissioned by Cosimo dei Medici, built Corridor Vasariano joining Palazzo Pitti (the residence) to Palazzo Vecchio (Medici’s offices).

Until 1593 Ponte Vecchio was the place where you could find the butcher’s shops (in Florentine dialect “i beccai”) which could disperse meat waistes in Arno.
In 1593 Ferdinando I, to prevent smells from meat, decided Ponte Vecchio had to be occupied exclusively by goldsmith shops.
