Modern portraits of old craftsmanship
a photographic book in partnership with Alessandro Venier

This book is the result of a research lasted a year and a half. We visited more than 60 workshops meeting the last representatives of trades that are endangered. We portrayed them in their workspaces, where the final customer usually does not have access. Women and men, witnesses and architects of a world that, despite the difficulties, and the modernization continues to exist precisely, where it has always been. A reality that today more than ever shows us the way to an innovative succession planning – looking to the future without forgetting past.
