Creator and developer of 'Artigianato e Palazzo'
In 1992, Neri Torrigiani set up his design studio in Florence, focusing on packaging (for fashion and auction houses, wine producers and others), communications (from installations to opening events for the best shops in Florence’s historic centre, from the creation of specialised guides to countless websites), on organising events (art, fashion and crafts exhibitions) and on interior design.
In 1995, he conceived and launched the “Artigianato e Palazzo” project, collaborating with Giorgiana Corsini with a view to preserving and promoting high-end craftsmanship, the value of hand-made creations and care for details.
For many years, Neri Torrigiani has been cooperating with important institutions in Florence’s cultural scene, such as the Museo Marino Marini, Virgilio Sieni’s ‘Cantieri Goldonetta’, the Writers’ Festival and the ‘Gregor von Rezzori – Città di Firenze Literary Prize’.
He is also the founding partner of several associations and projects, among which: the ‘CORRI LA VITA Onlus’ Association (presided over by Bona Frescobaldi and awarded the ‘Fiorino d’Oro della Città di Firenze’ in 2012), the ‘Fabbrica Europa’ Association, promoting the eponymous Festival, and the ‘Amici della Galleria dell’Accademia di Firenze’ Association, established by the director Cecilie Hollberg.
