Announcement “Una scuola, un lavoro” edition 2020/2021

The project "Una Scuola, un Lavoro. Percorsi di Eccellenza" (One School, One Job. Percorsi di Eccellenza), conceived and supported by the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte in Milan, has been promoting for 10 years now the inclusion of young talents in the world of high artistic craftsmanship, financing extracurricular training internships in the workshop, for six months side by side with a great master craftsman. Also for the 2020/2021 edition there will be a "Mini Master" that will precede the 6 months of internship and will be offered free of charge to all selected young people. The theme of this year's edition is "Artisan Renaissance and sustainability". Renaissance as Italian historical heritage, but also as rebirth and restart after a great change that overwhelmed everyone, undermining at its roots the system of small artisan workshops. This rebirth cannot be separated from a new attention and awareness towards the themes of environmental, economic and social sustainability: themes that have always been historically intertwined with artistic craftsmanship, in a completely natural way. Schools located all over Italy, such as Universities, Vocational Training Centres, Fine Arts Academies, ITS and IFTS, Artistic High Schools, Higher Education Schools and private training institutions operating in the field of artistic craftsmanship, are called to identify the best newly qualified, newly graduated or recent graduates to apply for the project "Una Scuola, un Lavoro" (A School, a Job) together with a workshop, laboratory, atelier or craft enterprise located on the national territory, and willing to host them for this important training experience. Applications will be collected by the Cologni Foundation from 1 to 30 September 2020. The application modalities, together with the model of the necessary documents, will be downloadable from the website
