Genoa is renowned for a diversity of artisan traditions. Here's the best of craftsmen signed by Starhotels President.
Highlights include the Chiavari chairs made by two dedicated young craftsmen, the Fratelli Levaggi, who, from selecting wood to making finishing touches, are involved in every step of the creation of a product famed for its elegance and perfect relationship between lightness and robustness (469 via Parma - Chiavari).
Zoagli, on the other hand, is known, not by chance, as velvet country. Among those involved in this ancient art is Tessitura Giuseppe Gaggioli.
Damasks, velvets and silk: fine warps, which, on request, can also contain gold and silver, and are produced based on designs from its vast historical archive or according to the customer’s own designs (via dei Velluti, 1 - Zoagli).
