The Arezzo area is one of the world capitals of gold: there are about 1,100 companies dedicated to this old craft. The goldsmiths of Arezzo, in fact, spread between the 14th and the 15th centuries with the sacred works manufacturing, but actually the tradition of working gold here has even more ancient origins.
The Etruscans worked it implementing some techniques which are still used in the workshops. During a Play Your Tuscany blog tour, while in Cortona, we visited the Del Brenna studio, where three generations handed down the same passion. At Del Brenna it's possible to meet artisans, interact with them and see the techniques and processes involved in making jewelry.
