Online profiles of interns “Una Scuola, un Lavoro”

On the website dedicated to the project “Una Scuola, un Lavoro. Percorsi di eccellenza” the profiles of the trainees of the 2022/2023 edition are available online. Discover the faces of the 25 young protagonists: among these master craftsmen of tomorrow, some come from countries such as France, Estonia, Romania, Venezuela and Peru and have found in the Bel Paese the fertile ground where they can study and learn the craft of their dreams. Photographer Peter Elovich, an expert eye for capturing hand gestures, has traveled around Italy for us, discovering hidden and fascinating workshops of our artisan tradition. In these places of savoir-faire, our young people, accompanied on a field training course by their tutors, are honing their knowledge and testing what it means to work in an atelier of a master of art or manufacture of excellence. One of the goals of this Fondazione Cologni project is to cultivate the masters of tomorrow by offering so many skilled artisans the opportunity to train an apprentice who can learn the secrets of the trade and work alongside them. From goldsmithing to tailoring, from restoration to the performing arts, from art foundry to ceramics, to the crafts of taste such as white art: each story available on will be a passion pill in which you can also read the impressions of each of the trainees at work.
