Great stories often begin with the unassuming – the seemingly ordinary. An impassioned zeal for the finer things saw a young Roman, Giuseppe Zampa, authenticating precious materials in service to the Order of St John during the great Grand Master Ramon Perellos’s reign in the 17th century. It wasn’t long before
Zampa’s august acclaim saw him reaching new heights, fashioning beautiful handcrafted silver. Zampa’s love for Malta never waned and here he remained. His passion was passed on to his children and, with that, came the first Zampa jewellery shop being set up in 1804 on Santa Lucia Street. The rest, as they say, is history.
