The BUCCELLATI Path is the result of an important partnership agreement between the Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana and the Maison BUCCELLATI.
The project envisages that 12 students selected by SOA and by the Company will be placed in one of the Company’s offices or within one of the companies of the group to which BUCCELLATI belongs (RICHEMONT Group). The Group companies interested in the “BUCCELLATI Path” profile are: CARTIER, VAN CLEEF & ARPELS, VACHERON CONSTANTIN, MONT BLANC, BAUME & MERCIER, OFFICINE PANERAI, PIAGET, etc.
For the Engraving and Chasing and repousse’ anticlastic forming courses, 100 hours of lessons are foreseen, instead of 80 as in the institutional courses. During the course, 90 hours of training are also foreseen.
Of the 10 Courses listed above, 3 (Microscope stone setting course, Engraving and Chasing and repousse’ anticlastic forming) are defined as MASTER CLASS.
Candidates for the Buccellati Path will be selected through the Hobby goldsmith course lasting 65 hours and costing €1,500. For those selected for the Path, this cost will be included in the total price of €12,800. The amount will be paid in installments and paid to the School in fixed monthly installments.
At the end of the Hobby goldsmith course, SOA will select the profiles that will be proposed to BUCCELLATI. The company in turn will select the 12 students who will access the Path from within this group. Over about 12 months, the students will complete the 10 planned courses and all those who will be selected (hopefully all), BUCCELLATI will award a scholarship of €6,000
The students selected at the end of the course may be assigned to one of the specialties taught according to the needs of the company and not necessarily in Milan, but also in one of the other offices of the Maison (currently the operational offices are: Milan, Valbrona, Bologna and Chiasso ). Transfers to other European countries are also possible.
The students who will be selected at the end of the course will have to accept employment at the Maison or at the companies of the Richemont Group for at least 3 years. Otherwise, the Maison will request all or part of the refund back.
A special SOA Certificate is expected for the 12 selected who will participate in the Path and a special SOA/BUCCELLATI certificate for those who will be hired by the Company.
