The now historic event in Florence Artigianato&Palazzo, the market-exhibition of artisan excellence in Italy, is back, now in its XXVIII edition. The exhibition, now produced by the Giardino Corsini Association of which Sabina Corsini is president, while sinking its assumptions in the furrow of the oldest craft tradition, wants to highlight the contemporary nature of craftsmanship. Indeed, the aim is to present and enhance the figure of the craftsman, his work and his role in the current cultural and commercial context, as a high expression of quality and technique. Along the exhibition itinerary, the visitor is led to discover how the craftsman manually creates the product by making it live in small workshops reconstructed in the Garden and the Lemon Grove. Every year about a hundred artisans are selected by the Organization who are the absolute protagonists of the event, mostly from Tuscany, but also from many other parts of Italy and abroad. For a long time this has been an unmissable appointment for all lovers of high craftsmanship. In a unique and evocative setting: the marvelous and poetic garden so beloved by Giorgiana Corsini, the unforgettable inspirer and champion of the event so beloved by Florentines and others.
