“BLOGS & CRAFTS i giovani artigiani e il web” is an initiative begun in 2014 by the ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO exhibition committee that seeks to increase youth engagement in the event. In order to do so, the initiative creates opportunities for bloggers and young traditional artisans to have mutually beneficial exchanges of content and coverage.
This project aims to exhibit traditional technical skills through contemporary communication channels.
Also this year, for the 6th edition of BLOGS & CRAFTS, developed thanks to the support of Fondazione Ferragamo, a select committee will choose 10 artisans under the age of 35 who will have the opportunity to exhibit their work for free during ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO.
A group of bloggers in fields such as artisanal crafts, lifestyle, fashion, and tourism will be selected and asked to live blog the event and write a post about their experience. They will be offered one night accommodation in Florence by Starhotels and a spa package by BodyCare.
