Artigianato e Palazzo
Sat 16 May, 2015 @ 12:00 pm BST€8,00
The 21st edition of ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO, an exhibition created to promote the high quality of the Made in Italy in arts and crafts, will be held from Thursday May 14 to Sunday May 17 in the Giardino Corsini of Florence.
The organizers have selected about 80 artisans from all over Italy and from abroad. Over the course of four days, from 10 am to 9 pm, the artisans will give live demonstrations of their fascinating techniques, and will realize precious artefacts.
On Saturday 16 May at 12pm the Associazione Città Nascosta will curate the free guided tours to the Giardino Corsini, highlighting the wonders of the garden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The “Mostra Principe” will be dedicated to Fabriano, the Florentine continuation of the Paris show for the 750th anniversary of Fabriano paper (founded in 1264).
In the small limonaia of Giardino Corsini, staged by designer Anusc Castiglioni, a Fabriano master papermaker will show the workmanship of handmade paper.
Thanks to a partnership with the Fondazione Ferragamo, the “Blogs&Crafts” returns, supported by QN / La Nazione, to give value to the link between quality of handmade and new technologies. 10 artisans under 35 will be selected to participate and 10 young bloggers will write about the show, in live blogging on their sites.
A chef will cook for the second edition of “Ricette di Famiglia”, a project realized in collaboration with Richard Ginori, celebrating 280 years since its foundation, and curated by the gastronomic journalist Annamaria Tossani.
ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO has been included in the official calendar of Expo Milano 2015.
