Watch a goldsmith at work using traditional Florentine techniques at Paolo Penko Goldsmith Workshop. Coming from three generations of goldsmiths, the owner, Paolo, combines Renaissance-style influences with contemporary touches. Over 25 years ago, he decided to move his workshop from a hidden little back room to the front of shop, allowing customers to see him at work. His art has been featured in Vogue magazine and a number of his pieces can be found in national museums. Paris Hilton, Madonna, and Pope Francis himself are among Paolo's customers.
