    Piero De Vecchi founded the De Vecchi Atelier in 1935, and to this day, this Milanese studio - one of the great boutique silversmiths in the world - remains in the family. The atelier first received international recognition in 1947 after being awarded several prizes during the Eighth Milan Triennial. In 1957 Piero’s son, artist and kinetic sculptor, Gabriele, joined his father in the workshop, followed by his grandsons Matteo and Giacomo in the 1990s.
