BOTTEGHE

For the first time in the history of the city, only a few dozen true craftsmen remain in Florence. The project consists in documenting their workplaces (the shops, in fact) in their daily life without any manipulation of objects or lights.
The craftsman is absent, one senses their presence, but it is not known if and when will come back. The shop is empty, silent witness of the gradual disappearance of traditional works and with them, of the centuries-old culture of "know-how".
