MILAN — Bulgari Gioielli, the jewelry branch of the Italian luxury goods company acquired by LVMH Moet Hennesy Louis Vutton in 2011, has announced a new partnership with the For.Al Association for Professional Training near Alessandria, northwestern Italy, offering specialized courses for goldsmiths and budding jewelry designers. The classes will be available at the For.Al Vincenzo Melchiorre school in Valenza, also part of the Piedmont region.

“In addition to consolidating [our] ten-year relationship with the gold-working For.Al school and offering new internship opportunities for young people, this represents a significant example of the attention that the business system pays to school and training,” said Bulgari Gioelli president Mauro di Roberto. “Indeed, Bulgari plays an extremely important role in Valenza’s gold-working district and can provide a high level of specialized training and professional development. In the near future, we intend to conceive and finance training programs to acquaint young people with Bulgari’s production model and bring them closer to it.”

Bulgari Gioielli has two product development and gold-working facilities near Alessandria, and a luxury jewelry laboratory in Rome.
