craftwork promoted in the workshops of “Cena dell’Amicizia” for the homeless of the metropolis. To value the genius loci of the territory, through the census and promotion of the artisans-artists, the association “Fatto ad arte” and the “Osservatorio per l’artigianato artistico” have been working since 1997, established with the purpose of encouraging and promoting applied art and artistic craftwork of quality. To finish, the experience of the “Cantieri Isola” in Milan where the craftwork contributes with other subjects to enhance the identity of a neighbourhood called the Isola. This area, which opposes building speculation, promotes new opportunities of co-operation, solidarity, entrepreneurship, and involvement with the rest of the city.
