“Artigiano del Cuore” contest: applications open May 5

06/05/2022 - 06/06/2022

The fifth edition of the "Artigiano del Cuore" contest, promoted by Fondazione Cologni and the Wellmade platform, is about to start. This year, the contest is aimed at artisans and workshops that carry on a tradition linked to their local area, understood as the place where the business is based, or the place of origin of the candidate or nominee. The goal is to reward the realities that preserve artisan traditions and territorial specificities, helping to popularize and evolve them. Up for grabs is a mentoring course, worth €3,000, funded by the Fondazione Cologni, with the communication agency TA-DAAN, which will help the winner tell his or her story and work in the digital world, in an innovative, effective and original way. Applications can be submitted directly on the contest website, starting May 5 and ending at noon on June 6.
