Alessandro Nicotra di San Giacomo founded his first studio in 1999 in via del Governo Vecchio, one of the most ancient and fascinating street of Rome. He studied the traditional techniques of the goldsmith’s art, availing himself of experienced technicians and artisans. He also explored with them innovative techniques. The aim of this research was to create a modern and entrepreneurial approach to the goldsmith’s art.
He also concentrated his research on the creation of a collection of unique but metropolitan jewels, accessible but precious, custom made models but at the same time pret-a-porter.
The successful collection “Gold, silver and silk” is born from these first intuitions. Today the collection is the flagship of the brand NDSG, that since his creation hasn’t stopped to seek the advice of experts.
“All my best ideas come from having no answer – from not knowing. You never know the truth of the matter until you do it.” John Cassavetes.
Nicotra Di San Giacomo is a forward-looking family, proud of its past and looking to the future with optimism.
NDSG is located in Rome in Via Del Governo Vecchio and in many boutiques in Italy and abroad.
