After millennia of research and chemical procedures tried and tested, the formula is now universally accepted as true: Whence natural inspiration and historical patrimony are invoked by the skilled hands of a master artisan, therein something beautiful shall arise. Such is the work of Master Artisan Paolo Penko, goldsmith and sculptor - an alchemist of the modern age.
Tucked away in one of Florence's notoriously meandering alleys, Paolo's workshop is located just a few steps from the iconic "Duomo." It is the place where he prefers to petrify nature's beauty into golden masterpieces, adorned with precious stones, and valuable beyond what their ticket value may imply.
Born in the birthplace of the Renaissance, Paolo can't help but draw upon the wealth of inspiration that has surrounded him since he was a boy. Bruneleschi, Botticelli and Donatello represent but a few of his collaborators that contribute to the conception of each of his designs. To commission a project with Paolo is to invite a consultation in which your personal inspiration is amalgamated into an eternal context, distinctive of the worlds greatest masterpieces.
Contemporary as they are, Paolo's works transcend time. Hewn from ancient goldsmithing secrets, fruits of Paolo's life-long research, each handmade piece is an intimate reminder of a place of a time, of sights that never leave you, of an eternal philosophy of life.
