Battiloro


Since 1926, in this precious family-run workshop located in the house where the great Titian lived for 45 years, the ancient craft of gold leaf production has been jealously handed down through the generations.

On this special occasion, the last gold beater in Europe, the custodian of ancient techniques and processes, reveals how the gold is worked entirely by hand: from the melting stage, then through lamination and filling, to the first and second beating, and finally the very delicate cutting and packaging of the impalpable leaves.
The final result is gossamer-thin gold leaf, ready to embellish works of art and artisan creations, enrich refined dishes, and make the beauty of women shine, always in the name of the prestige that only the most noble of precious metals can offer.

This is a unique opportunity

to discover the last gold beater in Europe and how the gold is worked entirely by hand.
