Apartment, laboratory, museum of jewel and fashion, since 1944

Unique creations, masterpieces of elegance made by the great artist Maria Vittoria Albani. Today the daughter and the grandchild continue the tradition.

Maria Vittoria Albani was an icon of artisanal and Haute Couture jewelery, world famous and tireless until her last breath, which reached her very old on April 25th 2019. “She worked until a few days before she died. This laboratory was his reason for living and kept it up and running to the last. Even in the last week of her life, she created plexiglass pins from home that are still on display in the workshop. And she even wanted to put a bed in the laboratory not to lose a day in her world “. This is the memory full of passion and gratitude of Simona Scala, her daughter, who inherited the apartment – laboratory – museum – art temple in via Monte Cervino, 4. It is difficult to define this place, made up of shelves, sideboards and drawers full of extraordinary creations, which tell a hundred years of fashion and costume history. The creations of Maria Vittoria Albani were exhibited at the Traveling Exhibition of Teatro alla Scala in Milan curated by Swarovski, enchanted the Marbella jet set and were appreciated at the Victoria Museum in London, as well as in New York, Tokyo and in the most important capitals of the world. Among her clients is the Princess of Monaco, Maria Callas, up to the influencers who crowd the red carpets all around the world.
