I Segreti del Mestieri (The Secrets of the Trade)

Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte presents "I Segreti del mestiere" (The Secrets of the Trade): a column that collects a series of online tutorials made by excellent master craftsmen, which will introduce the public to some "tricks of the trade": from calligraphy to the correct maintenance of shoes, from fabric decoration to illustration. The activities illustrated by the tutorials are designed to be reproducible at home, so that you can experience the emotion of being... artisans for a day. The first tutorial that will "go on air" will be dedicated to calligraphy. Ivana Tubaro, Claire Billiotte and Claudia Tavella, calligraphy teachers from the Milanese atelier Yvat and Klerb will help you improve your calligraphy, starting with warm-up and rhythm exercises.
