Artigiano del Cuore
The craftsman is a very important figure in the Italian culture and economy. Being an artisan means making sacrifices, training for a job for many years, pursuing beauty relentlessly, living closely with the local community. In recent times this figure has received little regard, with the result that new generations are mostly unaware of these high-value professions and ignore the opportunities that they offer. The risk is the disappearance of a priceless national heritage.
“Artigiano del Cuore” means “my favourite artisan”, it is a contest launched to promote Italian arts and crafts, to acknowledge the value of extraordinary masters and to make the web audience aware of the magnificent world of the métiers d’art.

As an award, Brevimano srl has realized for them these short documentaries. Behind a camera, they had the possibility to tell their daily life – inside and outside the workshop -, the passion for their job, the love for their city.
