www.well-made.it is the new platform which has been online since October 2016 and allows you to learn about the best Italian artisans, express an opinion on their work and write a review of their product quality and customized services. In a world where everything can be delivered directly to your doorstep (food, clothing, furniture), Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte and Whomade have felt the need to create a tool that goes against the current trend by encouraging people to visit artistic craft shops and meet face-to-face with master artisans.
