    Castellani: Roman goldsmith and jeweler Fortunato Pio Castellani is credited with riving Etruscan Jewelry design in the 1820s. Through tireless experimentation, he was able to simulate the ancient decorative technique of granulated gold. Accompanied by sons, Alessandro and Augusto the Casa Castellani attained worldwide fame for their architectural designs and miniature mosaic work.
