The Language of Craftsmanship: the Case of Florentine Artisans

This talk is about a project on the arts and craft lexicon led by Lorenza in cooperation with OmA (Osservatorio mestieri d’arte). The aim of the project is to enhance the SMEs communication strategy, helping them to share their vision of the arts and crafts and their cultural value to a wider public. The research focuses on the cluster of concepts related to the arts and crafts: handmade, bricolage, homemade, DIY, art, design – just to name a few. As part of the project, Lorenza has prepared a questionnaire on arts and crafts, which will be distributed to the audience
