Artigianato e Palazzo | XXVI Edition
La Mostra ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO botteghe artigiane e loro committenze è nata nel 1995, da un’idea di Neri Torrigiani e promossa dalla principessa Giorgiana Corsini, principalmente per rivalutare e rinquadrare ai giorni nostri la figura dell’artigiano e del suo lavoro, considerandolo alta espressione di qualità e di tecnica, legato sì alla committenza, ma insistendo sull’idea di un artigianato per sua natura “moderno”, senza con questo dimenticare l’elemento fondamentale della tradizione.

NEW DATES!

Taking place this year from Thursday, 17 September to Sunday, 20 September will be the 26th ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO botteghe artigiane e loro committenze exhibition. The event, held in the 16th-century Giardino Corsini, will bring to Florence a new selection of 90 representatives of the best in master craftsmanship, with major focus on the new generations, that will include potters, glass engravers, silver embossers and goldsmiths, carvers, restorers, string instrument makers, tailors, semi-previous stone and wood inlayers, wickerworkers, designers and much more.

 

“We still believe there is a future for these areas of artisanship that can still be found in Italy, but we must continue to promote the value of creativity, originality and one-of-a-kind pieces if we want the profound sense of this work to be understood,” explain Giorgiana Corsini and Neri Torrigiani.

 

It represents a diversified, select group promoted by the Associazione Culturale Giardino Corsini as part of a project by Giorgiana Corsini and Neri Torrigiani—an opportunity to also reflect on and share new styles that interpret the constantly-evolving relationship between tradition and innovation, and handcrafts and technology—by bringing together expert artisans who reveal their secrets as they work in their small studio spaces created for the occasion in the orangerie and the grounds of the formal Italian-style gardens.

This Florentine event also offers a full programme of activities such as:

  • FUNDRAISING “GIAMBOLOGNA AND MORGANA LE FAY”: the new fund-raising drive in support of the arts and culture, directed towards private individuals and companies.
    The goal is to reproduce the statue by hand using state-of-the-art technologies and house it in the space for which it was designed and then restore the entire “Fonte della Fata Morgana” (“Fountain of Morgan Le Fay”) complex—also known locally as the “Casina delle Fate” (“Little Fairy House”)—which was built by Bernardo Vecchietti in the second half of the 16th century inside the grounds of the Il Riposo villa, his summer home in the heart of the Chianti area in the foothills of Fattucchia in what is now the town of Bagno a Ripoli.
  • BLOGS & CRAFTS: also repeated in this year’s edition is the BLOGS&CRAFTS competition founded by Giorgiana Corsini and Neri Torrigiani to promote the creativity of young people by combining “knowing how” with “knowing how to communicate”. The ten under-35 winning artisans, chosen from among the best talents for their capacity to innovate tradition with state-of-the-art techniques, will be guests at the event and will work and exhibit their creations in a Limonaia (orangerie) in the Giardino Corsini. At the same time, their works will be documented through live blogging by 10 of the best bloggers – experts on the themes of crafts, lifestyle, fashion, tourism – who will be offered accommodation during their stay in Florence by Starhotels and a dinner by OOO.
