A JOURNEY THROUGH OUR HISTORY

GrandTour Collection originates from the generational experience of the Borrazzi family, craftsmen and antique dealers of Rome, who have always been surrounded by beauty, in terms of art, antiquity, history and cultural traditions, in the magical backdrop that is Rome.

The goldsmith and watch repair workshop was founded in 1947, and laid the basis for a flourishing tradition in artisanal handicraft. The following generation transformed the workshop into an antique shop, where the study of antiquity and art was pursued as a fundamental part of their philosophy.

The third generation of the Borrazzi family, Michela and Roberto, combined the handicraft traditions of their grandparents with the experience of their parents. Indeed, their gallery in via dei Coronari dealt exclusively with rare objects personally selected from different part of the world; their focus then shifted into the creation of a new collection of jewels, GrandTour.

During the years spent working in an environment rich of ancient objects, amid galleries, antique dealers and magnificent art collections, the antique shop of Roberto and Michela has seen a wide variety of techniques, colours, shapes, ideas, precious objects, different styles, cameos of every type and several engraving collections. In the past, especially during the classical period, these collections were considered a sort of inventory of works of art, which have deeply the GrandTour Collection.
