The International Charter of Artistic Craftsmanship

On 26 April 2010, the CNA, Confartigianato, Ateliers d’Art de France, the Kyoto Prefecture and many others came together as part of an international network to sign a unique document that draws up the guidelines for the artistic craftsmanship sector: the International Charter of Artistic Craftsmanship.

This unique document establishes the bases for standardising the entire sector. It is an important step that will recognise artisan skills as a means of attracting tourists and cultural visitors

A guarantee for consumers

The Charter specifies the requirements for falling within the scope of artistic craftsmanship, stating that works must be creative and made predominantly by hand with a high level of professional skill. Artistic craftsmanship also includes the restoration of artistic items.

It is also described as a way of promoting economic, cultural and social values, as the work carried out fuels the local economy and creates jobs and social stability, as well as passing on values.

A breath of life for Ligurian artisan businesses! The first point of the new agreement clearly defines the universal value of hand-made objects, which bear the identity of a people, create material culture and deliver a spiritual message.
