A Master Goldsmith, he has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Conservation of Cultural Heritage and wrote his thesis on the history of jewellery. He has also taken a specialization course in Jewellery Design at the Politecnico di Milano.
Michele Marzotto loves to expand his knowledge by studying art and artistic techniques. By describing himself as “creative in the broadest sense of the term”, Michele believes he is making a declaration of intent. This expresses itself in the ability to keenly observe the world in order to pick up on details that become the essential lines of jewels. He has received recognition in a number of competitions. In 1998 he was given the London Design 2000 Award for Twothousand, a project for a necklace in white gold and diamonds with essential lines and a pure design. In 1999 at VicenzaOro1 he won the “Premio della Madrina”, sponsored by Balocchi Preziosi, with a ring in yellow gold and onyx. Since November 2000 he has been working as a designer and model maker for companies in the trade and since 2001 he has been an advisor for ADOR, the Association of Italian Gold Designers, which keeps and protects the ideas deposited in the archives by Michele.
