The Museo dell'Arte della Lana in Stia and the EcoMuseo del Casentino organize the seventh edition of the event
To do things well IT WANTS THE TIME YOU NEED! a day with the artisans in Stia
Sunday, September 16, the appointment with the two Stia Museums is back dedicated to the valorisation of crafts and crafts of the past.
The evocative Salone a Volta of the Lanificio di Stia, where the looms were working in the past, will host artisans and artists from all over Italy on Sunday 16 September, demonstrating their art through demonstrations. An opportunity to rediscover the crafts of the past but also the new artistic techniques, in a journey from tradition to innovation of local artistic craftsmanship.Saranno infatti svolte dimostrazioni di pratiche artigianali oggi quasi perdute come la tessitura a mano o la lavorazione del merletto e della ceramica; ma verrà dato spazio anche alle nuove attività come il riciclo creativo, il feltro ad ago, il patchwork e molto altro. Tutte attività guidate dalla passione e dalla creatività che danno vita ad opere d’arte uniche e di alta qualità.
In the afternoon there will be space for children to have fun with a wide range of free educational workshops organized by the "Museums and Ecomuseums of Casentino" network.
From 4:00 pm at the Lanificio it will be possible to take part in the workshops conducted by the operators of the Casentino museums: the Museo dell'Arte della Lana, the Archaeological Museum, the Ecomuseum and the Planetarium. At 5.00 pm at the Museo del Bosco e della Montagna there will be the animated reading "The Firebird" by Fata Borbotta, followed by a workshop suitable for children aged 5 to 9 years.
At 5:30 pm at the Lanificio the "Sul Filo della Lana" exhibition will be previewed, organized by the Tramandiamo Laboratory, which will be inaugurated on 20 October. The event is realized thanks to the contribution of the Tuscany Region, the National Park of Casentino Forests and the Municipality of Pratovecchio Stia, in collaboration with Museums and Ecomuseums of Casentino, Tramandiamo Laboratory, Sci Club Stia, and Arredamenti Lorenzoni.
