Nicotra di San Giacomo
Back to Renaissance
Incredible jewels, for both men and women, are available at Alessandro Nicotra’s shop located in the vicinity of Campo de’ Fiori. Based on an old Renaissance technique, gold or silver filaments are woven into wefts and colours chosen by the customer.
The pride of production is the establishment’s “full knit”, gold or silver fabric, an ultra-soft, shiny metal fabric. The result are masterpieces of workmanship that meld in beautifully with the woven fabrics.
His cufflinks, bearing the engraved initials, need I say, of the customer for whom they were designed, are ultra-glam. Available in onyx, coral, enamel, tourmaline or featuring more classic precious stones, they are all unique, unrepeatable pieces.
Nicotra di San Giacomo is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.

On the occasion of the contemporary art fair MiArt, which was recently held in Milan, Made in Town encountered consultant and curator Federica Sala, co-founder of PS Design Consultants. Over the course of this informal interview, she references her vocation and takes stock of the evolving particularities of the design sector, both in France and Italy.
Under the title "Complément d’objets", Made in Town is exploring the field of design through the work of designers, architects, craftsmen, artists and furniture manufacturers, and focusing on the most distinctive features of designing, handcrafting or industrially manufacturing objects, furniture and accessories. The first edition highlights the work of wood and the various approaches that go along with it.
In order to promote the know-how and characteristics of the tapestry from Aubusson, the county town of the French region of Creuse, Made in Town conducted a series of three documentary videos at the request of the International City of the Tapestry and Woven art, in partnership with l’Institut français de la mode and with the support of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
