Indagare Ambassador: Fabio Salini

Fabio Salini is one of Rome’s premier jewelers, crafting exceptional pieces that are both opulent and contemporary. He brilliantly plays with lavish materials and textures like coral, rose gold, colored diamonds and leather to create visionary pieces that have decorated international royalty and celebrities. Having started his career at the haute jewelry houses of Cartier and Bulgari, Salini now showcases his designs at his own atelier on Rome’s Via de Monserrato, which is open exclusively by appointment only. Here, he talks to Indagare about his favorite places to dine in Rome and Sicily, his most transformative trip and how his travels have inspired his exquisite creations.
