Give me a word, any word and I will show you the root of that word is Greek

BVLGARI is a famous Italian company known throughout the world for its luxurious jewellery and accessories.  You’re probably thinking it’s another fine discovery by the Italians?

 You may be surprised to know that its origins were in fact Greek!

 Sotirios Voulgaris was a watch maker from a small Greek village called Paramythia.  He left for Italy and eventually settled in Rome where BVLGARI was born.  

 Proof that if you have the guts, determination and vision you too can leave the tiny village for something bigger!
