Archimede Bottazzi (1893-1970) was an Italian goldsmith who was born in Vercelli. In 1907 he was admitted to the day courses of goldsmithing at the Burgundy School where he studied until 1910. Then in November 1911 he headed to Paris with funding from his school. He spent many years in Paris working and studying the Parisian master and in 1922 he exhibited some of his works after returning back to Vercelli. In 1923 he was awarded the silver medal by the jury of the International Exhibition of Decorative Art in Monza. This is what helped him pick up more notable clients and a commission for important works by the Royal House of Savoy. He passed away suddenly in 1970.
