Patrizia Donà is a successor of the long family tradition originating from the island of Murano, Venice. Her surname belongs to an ancient aristocratic family and it was mentioned for the first time way back in the 8th Ct.
During her childhood, she used to spend many summers in a family manufacturer, helping put together crystal parts of Venetian chandeliers, whose production is a unique and unsurpassed process. Patrizia’s father, a born Venetian from Murano, worked as a craftsman in Zagreb, where he moved for love to Patrizia’s mother.
His metalwork was much appreciated and people used to say he had mani d’oro (golden hands). So Patrizia grew up surrounded by lavorazioni artigianali, artisanal work, in an atmosphere where striving for perfection and continuous improvement came to her naturally.
