27 Sep Delivered the check of 50.000 euros for the Museo di Doccia
ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO delivered a 50.000 euros check to Associazione Amici di Doccia [Friends of Doccia] for the reopening of the Museo di Doccia as the result of the fundraising launched by Associazione Giardino Corsini in occasion of the XXIVth edition of the Exhibition.
The whole amount will finance a series of restaurations of several sculptural models in wax, chalk and terracotta, for a long time neglected, and above all essential to understand the oneness and the importance of the Manufacture of Doccia and its collection in an international context.
The project “ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO FOR THE MUSEO DI DOCCIA” was dedicated to the Associazione Amici di Doccia [Friends of Doccia] after the meeting organized by Confindustria Firenze with Minister Dario Franceschini during the G7 for Culture which took place in Florence in March 2017. The meeting was the premise for the Doccia Museum collection, which is of inestimable value, to be once again enjoyable by the public. The collection is composed of 8.000 works in porcelain, ceramic, maiolica, terracotta, lead; more than13.000 drawings, plates of engraved metal, chromolithographich stones, chalk moulds, wax sculptures.
