During the Altagamma Day "The 75 Years of the Senate and the Made in Italy of Excellence," the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte became an Altagamma Honorary Member. Stefania Lazzaroni, director general of Altagamma, presents our work this way: "For about 30 years the Fondazione Cologni with its many activities and initiatives has been promoting Italian artistic craftsmanship, concretely supporting the entry of young talents into the world of high craftsmanship and with the recognition "MAM - Maestro d'Arte e Mestiere" - of which Altagamma is a partner - identifies and enhances the best masters of art in Italy.
