Torre del Greco sets the scene for the success story of Vincenzo (Enzo) Liverino and the beauty of his coral creations.
Heir to a long family tradition (the workshop was established in 1894), he is a craftsman who has brought smart modern design to the creation of coral jewellery. At the same time, he manages to keep a unique and precious local tradition alive and well. Alongside contemporary style jewellery, the workshop also produces magnificent sculptures, such as nativity scenes sculpted in coral.
An expert craftsman of remarkable skill and business acumen, he also stands out for his scientific background. He was the only Italian representative at the First World Coral Congress in Kochi (Japan) in 1993. He also spent ten years travelling back and forth between Naples and Taiwan, where he helped develop the criteria for selecting the raw material. He even succeeded in attaining the quality certification ISO 9001.
Education has always been a keystone for the family. Although the school founded by Liverino’s father has unfortunately closed its doors, the workshop has opened one of the most prestigious coral museums in the world.
