The event, now in its tenth year, has achieved an international scope and several other European cities have been taking part in it for some years. The initiative’s purpose is to make the fascinating but often unexplored world of artistic crafts known to a wider public through workshops, conferences and lectures. This year’s theme is “Artistic Crafts, Tomorrow’s Gestures”. The program of initiatives held in Milan and Florence is viewable on:  www.giornatedeimestieridarte.it and www.osservatoriomestieridarte.it
