In Genova , we live in the biggest and most ancient historical center of Europe , in an ancient building that has been listed as Human Heritage .

Riccardo works the leather , a material with which he has created a strong bond that gives him the opportunity , trough jewels to sculptures the way to better express himself .

In 12 years he lived in Manila , working with leather , he has participated to the International Fashion Fair in Hong Kong with very nice bags .

I instead paint in our BOTTEGA , where you could trow an eye to find something that you may like ...

Genova is for us a source of inspiration , with it's history made of far away worlds and trade , the sea smell right in front of our house that fills us with creative energy .
All of this is what we would like to share with you .

Art and commerce , as it would well fit the stereotype of Genovesi and Ottomans , not to mention my jewish origins :) A right "marriage"
of creativity .

We wish you a nice tour in our Bottega !
