Gold Museum


In Arezzo, the Palazzo di Fraternita houses the showrooms of the permanent exhibition dedicated to the local goldsmith’s art. The museum brings together a collection of “unique pieces” made by leading contemporary artists and designers.

Gold for Arezzo represents art, history and economy. The manufacturing tradition that characterizes the city has ancient and precious origins that have become the soul of a present that is excellence, quality, and design. The Gold Museum recounts and encapsulates this thousand-year journey.

The jewelry on display, refined and extraordinary one-of-a-kind pieces, testify to the skill and mastery of goldsmiths in the creation of small works of art, inspired by the creativity of international artists and designers such as Venturino Venturi, Pietro Cascella, Salvatore Fiume, Bruno Munari, Arnaldo and Giò Pomodoro.

The Gold Museum will allow everyone to appreciate the Oro d’Autore collection: materials and projects for a new goldsmith collection that was created in 1988 as a leitmotif to unite Arezzo’s goldsmithing tradition with the originality of contemporary art, with the aim of giving new life to an iconic business sector of the city of Arezzo.This was the leitmotif that moved the idea of Oro d’Autore: materials and projects for a new goldsmith collection, to this day the absolute protagonist of the Gold Museum.

A unique collection that over the years has been able to attract the interest of the whole world, from the United States to Japan, and the artistic curiosity of names of international relevance such as Lynda Benglis, Mario Botta, Dan Friedman, Milton Glaser, Michael Graves, Marya Kazoun, Marta Minujin, Ugo La Pietra, Alessandro Mendini, Bruno Munari, Ettore Sottsass jr, Guido Venturini and many others, even going so far as to involve the world of fashion.
