Born in Naples in 1971, Fabrizio Buonamassa studied industrial design at the Istituto Superiore Industrie Artistiche in Rome.
He started his career at Centro Stile Fiat in Turin. During this experience, he managed very complex projects, both in terms of style and manufacturing.
In 2001, driven by the desire to take up new challenges and by his lifelong passion for watches, he sent some of his creations to the Bvlgari Design Center in Rome. Shortly afterwards, Mr. Paolo Bvlgari, CEO and creative pilot of the brand, invited Fabrizio to Rome to join the Watches Design team.
In 2007, he was appointed director of the Bvlgari Watches Design Center, where his mission is to constantly reinterpret Bvlgari’s rich stylistic and cultural heritage in a contemporary language in line with the brand’s DNA.
In 2011, Fabrizio moved the Watches Design Center to Neuchâtel in order to get closer to the heart of watchmaking and to better manage the high level of complexity associated with the creation and craftsmanship of Bvlgari timepieces. Today his contribution within the brand is not only related to watches but also to other product categories, so he was recently appointed Executive Director of Bvlgari Product Creation.
