The forthcoming 26th exhibition of ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO botteghe artigiane e le loro committenze will be held from Thursday, June 4 to Sunday, June 7, 2020 – open continuously from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM-.
The last exhibition was held in the splendid Corsini Gardens in Florence in May 2019 hosted a new selection of 100 amazing Italian and non-Italian craftspeople and welcomed over 10 thousand visitors. It received excellent press coverage in many different TV and radio shows, both regional and national.
For 26 years, the non-profit cultural association Associazione Culturale Giardino Corsini has been organizing and promoting ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO and has been committed to promoting and preserving the quality of craft excellence, the value of what is made by hand and the wealth of knowledge and skill that every master craftsperson hands down.
We are already working on two accompanying events for which great success is expected, that will be held during the Exhibition:
– The “BLOGS & CRAFTS” competition will be launched in January and is aimed at young craftspeople below age 35 (the 10 best craftspeople will be hosted for free at the Exhibition) and bloggers or instagramers commenting on crafts, lifestyle, fashion and tourism.
– The daily appointments with “Family Recipes” will also be back. This initiative started six years ago to promote the art of cuisine in order to enhance the close link between today’s food culture and that of traditional family recipes and traditional knowledge.
In view of the large numbers of registration requests submitted each year, we reserve the right to assess the applications received within the set date and to communicate acceptance by March 11, 2020 to the selected craftspeople.
Also this year, we have decided not to increase the registration fee and offer maximum discounts of 10% off the stand hire fee for exhibitors from outside the Tuscany Region to help them with travel costs.
As in previous years, the “Premio del Comitato Promotore” (Promotion Committee Prize) will be awarded for the best stand and the winner will receive a free stand at the 2020 Exhibition. The “Premio Perseo” (Perseo Prize) will be awarded to the favourite exhibitor of the visitors.
