Crafting the Future
Conference on the Future of Crafts

Great participation at the conference organized as part of the Horizon Europe Tracks4Crafts project, held on Monday, April 29, at the Teatrino Lorenese in the Fortezza da Basso, Florence.

The day began with a presentation by Floriana Folisi, Human Capital Development Expert at the European Training Foundation, on the publication “Crafting the Future: Five Squared,” which explores the five pillars of training the artisans of tomorrow in Europe.

During the round table, discussions covered knowledge transmission, the workshop-school systems of the Tuscany Region, innovation and digital support for generational transition, IFTS experiences, and new frontiers to help craft enterprises carry knowledge and quality into the future.

We thank all the speakers:
