Stefano Bertoli Announcement – for young luthiers

Stefano Bertoli's family with Fondazione Cologni and Fondazione Pro Canale have issued an announcement for young luthiers under 35 for the allocation of two co-working spaces at the Stefano Bertoli Violinmaking Workshop. The workshop was opened in 2017 by Stefano Bertoli with the aim of undertaking the activity and sharing the space with other young artisans to have opportunities for exchange and professional growth. The objective of this action is to give those who already have specific training the opportunity to test themselves, consolidate their skills and develop their profession without immediately facing high start-up costs that risk blocking the development of their activities; to offer opportunities for further training moments oriented to the development and management of their business, in a logic of sharing with other artisans; and to allow them to gain visibility, through the expansion of their network of contacts and deepening their knowledge of the market. The winners of the call will have the opportunity to use the co-working spaces free of charge for 24 months. The winning luthiers are asked to make, within the terms of the agreed residency period, at least two instruments that can be used in a final presentation concert. www.liutailab.it
