Silver shop

by SusanKiel

I was just recently in San Gimignano & purchased a beautfil hammered sterling silver bracelet from a small shop, but I can't remember the name of it & the transaction name on my credit card statement only says VIOLETTI GIOIELLI. Does anyone know about this shop - all the silver is hand-made & it appeared to be run by a husband & wife team.

Thanks so much!

A quick scan of the relevant sites comes up with VIOLETTI GIOIELLI being a jewellery store/manufacturer in Frascati. There is no record by the same name in San Gimignano. Is it possible that your card statement is showing the manufacturer. If so, then they can be contacted at Piazza S.Pietro 13, 00044 Frascati. Tel no:069 42 19 90.
This is a long shot

I checked the Yellow Pages of San Gimignano and only one jeweller is listed, but the name shop is Bitta Gioielli, the address is a small street called Vicolo Piandornella.

I have been hoping to locate this shop and it's owners to puchase more jewelry. I bought beautiful hammered earrings and would like more pieces.Please send any info about a silver shop in San Gimanagno. I would love to sell some pieces at our parish Italian festival this year. I visited in 2007 as well. Sharon

I was looking for the same silver shop online today & noticed your posting. We visited their shop a few years back & I remember it clearly the way you described it. You are looking for Risvegli D'Arte. The shop is owned by a very friendly couple, Gigli Stefano & Cristina Ferroni. They do beautiful work. Their contact info is:

Travel Tips for San Gimignano

Inside the fort

by Aurorae

This is in one of the two main squares of the town. There are these tall medieva "skyscvrapers" :)) that make San Gimignano so recognizable among many Tuscan views, it realy stands out.
The square is very cute and vivid, so lively and intimate at the same time.


by geismom

You really need some time to really explore the nooks and crannies of this beautiful town. We were limited to just an hour and a half, and we suffered a grave injustice.
I imagine that it would be quite an experience to be able to stay inside the city walls.
If you come by car, spend the day. You can even take in the beautiful views from atop!

Spectacular Sunrise

by Jmill42

On my trip, I rarely was up early enough to see any sunrises. But, I happened to see one my first day in San Gimignano, and because it was so wonderful, I did it every day I was there. To see the rolling hills light up slowly, as I enjoyed a hot cappucino in the chilly morning air, was hands down my most vivid memory.

Via San Giovanni

by MM212

Linking Porta San Giovanni with Piazza della Cisterna, Via San Giovanni is one of the main thoroughfares of San Gimignano. Outside the fortified walls, it led to Via Francigena which, in Mediaeval times, transported pilgrims and Crusaders all the way to Rome. Today, Via San Giovanni is a pedestrianised, cobblestoned street with numerous artisanal shops and mediaeval architecture along its side. It is one of the first sights visitors see upon arrival in San Gimignano from the south. Via San Giovanni was named after the Convent and Church of San Giovanni, which was rededicated to San Francesco in the 16th century, though the street kept its name.

Piazza della Cisterna

by Cristian_Uluru

Piazza della Cisterna is a very big square which is caracterized by the cisterna built in 1287 in the middle of the square. The Piazza has got a triangular shape with a natural pendence. It was enlarged in 1346 by Guccio Malavolti.
Along the sides of the square you can see wonderful palaces: Palazzo Razzi with windows with double arches; Casa Salvestrini built in the middle of 1200; Palazzo Tortoli-Treccani with Senese double arches built in the 12th century.
