Artigiano del Cuore Contest

Extraordinary situations require extraordinary initiatives: the 2020 edition of the Artigiano del Cuore competition, promoted by Wellmade, aims to concretely support Italian artistic craftsmanship in this emergency situation. For this year's winner a fundraiser will be organized, the proceeds of which will go to constitute a cash donation for the individual craftsman up to 5. The artisans can apply on the dedicated page, telling the value of their work and asking for the help they need to start over: the community will then vote for the candidates and their projects on the website. The Commission will evaluate the candidature on the basis of the answer to some questions: what is the value of your job, and why is it so important to preserve it? What concrete help would you like to receive to continue your activity with more serenity? The artisans have until June 11 to submit their applications. Every year the winners of the Artigiano del Cuore contest are invited to take part in the “Fatti Ad Arte” exhibition-market and also for the edition of #ArtigianodelCuore2020 the winner will have the opportunity to exhibit his work for free in this special, very suggestive and popular context.
