Giovanni Corvaja


Giovanni Corvaja is a renowned Italian goldsmith whose works have been acquired by the most prestigious museums and collectors in Europe, America and Australia. “I believe that manipulating and transforming gold is the most beautiful activity there is,” he says. “It allows you to concentrate a huge amount of energy, details, dedication and passion into small objects.” Thanks to his solid background and training, for 30 years Giovanni has been probing the artistic, formal and technical aspects of goldsmithing. Inspired by Greek mythology and the study of Alchemy, his researches led him to the creation of his own Golden Fleece: by reducing gold and platinum to the dimension of one fifth of a human hair, he discovered a whole new world of expressive possibilities in the field of jewellery.
