Collections Botteghe

For the first time in the history of this city, there are perhaps only a few dozen true craftsmen left.  This project consists in documenting their places of work their “Botteghe” (workshops) and their daily routines without changing any objects or lighting.
The craftsman is absent, his presence can be felt, but it is not known when he will be back.  The workshop is empty, a silent witness to the gradual disappearance of traditional work and therefore the disappearance of centuries old “know-how”.
