Maria Paola Barrotta
A third-generation goldsmith, Maria Paola Barrotta learnt the basic skills of working gold from her family in Lecce in Southern Italy. Thus, she continued improving her skills and then she put them at the service of major international companies in Rome and New York. She benefited from the contact with designers and jewelry makers to refine her technical skills. Now based in Rome, her design aesthetic still holds the same inspiration of when she started, the beauty of fine detailing and the earthy warmth of southern Italy.
