Have you ever looked at a sardine and thought, "I'd wear that"? Well, you will from now on. Let me introduce you to Pesci Che Volano, a unique shop located in Borgo Pinti. Pesci Che Volano specializes in creating beautiful and distinctive pieces of jewelry inspired by elements of nature, such as fishes, shells, leaves, and more. The lost-wax casting technique preserves the intricate details and textures of the original hand-shaped designs, resulting in captivating bronze pieces.

As soon as you step into Pesci Che Volano's shop in Borgo Pinti, Florence, you are immediately greeted by the smell of metal being shaped and sculpted by the milling machine that sits in the corner of the studio. It's a sensory reminder that you are in a place where artistry and craftsmanship come together. The shop's name, which translates to "Flying Fishes" in English, hints at the imaginative and whimsical nature of their creations, which makes each item truly one-of-a-kind.

In addition to their jewelry collection, Pesci Che Volano also offers a range of clothing items that complement their unique style. The garments at Pesci Che Volano are meticulously crafted by hand, embracing small-scale production and handmade textiles from natural fabrics, ensuring attention to detail and quality.

From silk necklaces, and beautifully crafted trousers, to hand-crocheted accessories, their clothing selection echoes the same spirit of artistic expression, individuality, and love for unconventional beauty as their jewelry.
