Italia-sumisura.it is online
Portal of artistic Italian handicraft
We proudly present to you Italia su misura: the art of Italian craftsmanship for the first time in a single website, dedicated to the best addresses of the shops and laboratories not to be missed.
The Italian craftsmanship in a trip from north to south of Italy to the discovery of this huge heritage. Historical workshops where the artisan tradition is handed down with passion.
In a market where everything is accessible and usable by now instantly, words such as "personalization", "authenticity" and "unity" are exclusive added values and this portal was created with the purpose to protect and shine these precious reality.
The initiative is promoted by Gruppo Editoriale with OmA - Osservatorio dei Mestieri d'Arte of Florence (non-profit association of 18 bank foundations participating in Acri) and Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte of Milan.
The portal contains a selection of the first 300 addresses throughout the Italian: shops and workshops throughout Italy that carry on the great legacy and heritage of artistic trades of excellence.
A list to grow, as the site will be gradually implemented. The website, in Italian and English language, will be a real permanent observatory. It will be updated daily and will emphasize all the major events that affect the landscape of Italian quality craftsmanship.
Each laboratories has a card with contacts and a description of the activity, it is contextualized within specific thematic sections and geo-referenced. Another search mode provides access to geographical area and raw material.
But the project does not stop there. Monday December 14 is the date of the presentation of a paper guide, where there will be included the best 100 craftsmen of Italy.
