Donate your 5×1000 to the Cologni Foundation and support artistic craftsmanship

Artisans are protagonists of added value in the Italian economic system: support their talent with a simple donation, indicating the Tax Code of Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte in your tax return: 97155080159. With this small gesture you can help concretely promote the activities of our Foundation in favor of the "intelligent hands" that create beauty for our country every day. With dedication, for more than twenty-five years, we have been putting our efforts at the service of cultural, scientific and popular initiatives: from the protection and promotion of the talent of masters of art to the inclusion of young people in the world of artistic craftsmanship. With the social campaign "A Good Reason to Donate Your 5x1000, No. 5" we have selected five projects that we believe may be worthy of your attention: "One School, One Job. Paths of Excellence" to support the artisans of tomorrow; the "MAM-Maestro d'Arte e Mestiere" award to enhance our "living treasures"; the "Wellmade" digital platform to promote the work of artisans; the magazine "Mestieri d'Arte & Design. Crafts Culture" and editorial activities to tell and disseminate stories of Made in Italy; and, finally, the chair "Italian Beauty and Crafts Professions" at the Milan Polytechnic, to bring young people closer to embarking on a career in the world of artistic crafts. Thank you in advance for your support.
