Signature of the international charter of artistic craftsmanship

June 3, 2010

CITEMA took part to the ceremony of subscription to the international charter of artistic craftsmanship that took place on April 28th in Fortezza da Basso in Florence.

The charter, describing craft sector as the guardian of universal values, proposes a European program in favor of handicraft. This program will involve key points like communication and promotion, internationalization and commercialization, research and innovation, training, education, tourism and museums. The charter has been finally officially published thanks to the strong participation of three main contributors: Serge Nicole, president of Ateliers d’Art de France, Alessia Zaninello, Vice President of CNA (national professional organization for craftsmen in Italy) and Giorgio Natalino Guerrini, president of Confartigianato Imprese (national professional organization of craftsmen in Italy). This is the first step towards the sharing of this charter by the biggest number of participants at international level, so that handicraft becomes an important target for European policies.
