Costanza Macrì e Monica Candido are the winners of the “Artigiano Del Cuore” Competition – 6th Edition 2023

Costanza Macrì and Monica Candido, goldsmiths and owners of the artisan business and workshop CosMonique Gioielli, are the winners of Artigiano Del Cuore (Artisan of the Heart) 2023 - 6th Edition. After being selected as finalists along with 9 other artisan enterprises, it was the community, through online voting, that chose them as "Artigiano Del Cuore": thanks to the great support of the public and more than 1,000 votes received collected, Costanza and Monica won the Contest. They will thus be able to receive the prize up for grabs: they will be joined by a resource, selected by Fondazione Cologni, who from September will work together with the agency TA-DAAN on the digital promotion of their brand CosMonique Gioielli. The selected resource will work on a paid internship contract, with all costs covered by Fondazione Cologni and Serapian, a historic maison of high leather goods and official sponsor of the Competition. Together with TA-DAAN, who will then play the role of tutor and supervisor of the project, the resource will develop a tailor-made communication plan, with the aim of increasing CosMonique's online visibility and telling the winners' work in an original and effective way on digital channels. In this way, the Competition is proposed as an initiative aimed at supporting the digitization of craft businesses and fostering the training and employment of young people. Through this path, Constance and Monica will be able to popularize the importance of their craft, and make their talents known to a wider audience.As part of the prize, the two goldsmiths will also be able to exhibit for free at the "Fatti ad Arte" event, which will be held in Biella on October 6, 7 and 8, 2023.
