A project, that of BLOGS & CRAFTS, launched by ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO in 2014 to involve the new generations who, with their vision of innovation, make a fundamental contribution to the changes in the artisan sector. “Our hope is to be able to host more and more young people and, with their presence at the Stables of Palazzo Corsini – the exclusive area on display dedicated to them -, to be able to convey to our visitors that craftsmanship is a contemporary reality” , declare Sabina Corsini, President of the Corsini Garden Association and Neri Torrigiani, creator and organizer of ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO.
Finally, the collaboration of the Ferragamo Foundation is renewed, which will give the winners the opportunity to visit the Salvatore Ferragamo Archive, custodian of the company’s tradition and of that craftsmanship so dear to its founder.
Like all the other exhibitors, the young “crafts” can be voted on by the public who, through special cards distributed at the entrance, will decide the winner of the “Perseus Prize”, as the best craftsman of CRAFTS AND PALAZZO Mostra 2022.
The registration forms can be downloaded from the ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO website in the BLOGS & CRAFTS 2022 section: those for young artisans must be received by May 20, those for influencers by July 22.
