FRANCO E GIORGIO SALIMBENI
REWARDED SILVERSMITH FROM
A long history of passion and international successes. In 2016 awarded with the golden florin by the municipality of Florence.
Silversmiths in Florence are many and there are also many techniques used to make silver products, even when speaking only of craftsmanship.
Franco and Giorgio Salimbeni are distinguished by their dedication to the processes of enamelling and guilloche carving.
In reality they turn out to be masters in all the most difficult techniques.
As proof of this, the various collaborations with almost all the luxury brands and an infinite series of customized products, unfortunately not showable, made for a very high level clientele.
The very high quality of Salimbeni products is known all over the world. Acknowledgments, mentions and prizes.
