Everything about Workshops and Lectures

Preziosa Concept

Preziosa is a cultural project imagined, managed and coordinated
by LAO - Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School in Florence.

The project started in 2005, and has quickly become one of the worldwide most important events devoted to contemporary jewellery.

Every year the artistic approach to the complex subject of jewellery is explored through a specific concept and with the selection of artists from the international scene.
