The second edition of the “Artigiano del Cuore” contest, organised by Wellmade and Brevimano, is underway. This year's competing categories are “Conservation of Beauty”, dedicated to the masters of restoration, and “Training to Excellence", centred on young talents of artistic crafts. The contest is aimed at raising public awareness about the importance of preserving our artistic heritage and the need to guarantee a future for century-old traditional trades. Twelve finalists, six for each category, will be selected from among all applicants, after which the audience will choose the winners through an open online vote. The winner of the "Preserving Beauty" category and the first and second finalists qualifying in the "Training to Excellence" categories will be offered a video documentary, to tell their stories and present their works.

Applications are open on the Wellmade website until 8 March. More info and full regulations are available at www.well-made.it/artigiano-del-cuore-2019
