Materia e Virtuosismo
Florence, 15-17 September 2023
Galleria dell’Artigianato’s traditional appointment at “Artigianato e Palazzo” is back. For this edition, which takes place in the “European Year of Skills” – instituted by the European Commission – the subject of the exhibition will be “Materia e Virtuosismo”: in the splendid setting of the Limonaia Focus in Corsini Garden, objects representative of the best technical and creative skills in Tuscany will be on display. The excellence of craftsmanship becomes true virtuosity, declined in different materials and processing techniques.
“Materia e Virtuosismo” wants to show, enhance, make known and admire the exceptional levels that experience and technique reach when they generate true masterpieces, which arouse the desire to be treasured by present and future generations to be admired over time. Symbols of man’s infinite creative abilities, and of his striving to know and challenge the limits of materials.
We look forward to seeing you there!
