Laffi was born in Florence, Italy and studied drawing, painting, and architecture before turning her attention to silversmithing. In 1947 she immigrated with her parents to Peru where Graziella’s father, Gino, also a metalsmith, opened a small workshop named Casa Laffi. It was at his workshop that she developed her remarkable skills as a silversmith. Laffi has been referred to as the “Spratling of Peru”. There is an installation of her work on view at LACMA in the Latin American galleries, Art of the Americas Building
