On the occasion of the great international project of the 2013 European Artistic Crafts Days, the Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d’Art, with the precious support of Vacheron Constantin, organised and promoted a number of exhibitions at significant venues, both public and private, of the city’s cultural and artistic life. The aim is to bring culture closer to a new and broader public, with special attention to the younger generations, giving international visibility to Italian artistic crafts within the framework of this important and prestigious European event and its network.
