eShop of the Abruzzese Artistic Craft Exhibition 2020
“Ente Mostra dell’Artigianato Artistico Abruzzese” was founded in 1970 in Guardiagrele (CH) Italy, thanks to the will of sensitive people who are attentive to local cultural activities. It is an autonomous body which aims to safeguard the artistic and craft activities of the area, maintaining partnership ties with similar national institutions, both public and private.
In 1981, the “Ente Mostra AAA” officially obtained legal recognition by the Abruzzo Region, becoming the reference point of a land rich in ancient traditions. Gold, wrought iron, copper, ceramic, wood, carved stone, bobbin work and embroidery, are all manufacturing activities that today the “Ente Mostra AAA” not only seeks to preserve and protect in their historical integrity, but also to promote and spread thanks to the Center of Excellence of the Abruzzese Artistic Craft, whose construction dates back to 2002.
Every year, since its inception, the Authority organizes the Abruzzese Artistic Craft Exhibition in Guardiagrele, in the month of August. The exhibition activity has been enriched over time with the institution of the “Nicola da Guardiagrele” National Goldsmith Competition which takes place every two years, and other international competitions and with the institution of the Permanete Museum inaugurated in 2006. The experiences matured by the Ente Mostra, allow Abruzzo crafts to broaden the horizon of knowledge and exchange also at national and international level, to obtain greater propulsive force allowing to take better care of the transmission of knowledge to the younger generations and strengthening training activities with artistic high schools and professional schools.
In this perspective, “Ente Mostra AAA” looks to the future with the implementation of a series of activities related to design and technological innovation according to current lifestyles. On the occasion of the 50th edition of the Exhibition which will be held from 1 to 23 August 2020 in Guardiagrele, the Ente Mostra wanted to give artisans the opportunity to expand the market offer by proposing the online purchase of the exhibits. This exhibition activity has been enriched over time with the institution of the National Goldsmith Art Competition “Nicola da Guardiagrele” which takes place every two years, this year now in its 18th edition, and other international crafts competitions.
