"Manifatture Aperte" is a success initiative of the city of Milan, that aims at presenting and sustaining urban manufactures and crafts activities thanks to a series of initiatives.

On November 29 and 30 factories, research laboratories, ateliers, academies, workshops and company museums will welcome visitors, illustrating their production and/or organising activities to help promoting the culture of well-making.

The Cologni Foundation invites the artisanal ateliers of excellence, active in the city of Milan, to take part in the initiative, and partners with the La Scala Academy to support the school's initiatives.

All the ateliers, workshops or labs that are interested in the project have to submit their application on www.manifattureaperte.it before November 4th.
