Puglia’s “know-how” is showcased. The Apulia Region in the context of the activities envisaged by the DGR n. 1277 of 07/28/2021 with the implementation by Unioncamere Puglia, finances the ARTIFEX initiative.
The general aim is to promote high quality artistic and traditional craftsmanship.
Artifex is in fact aimed at products, companies or brands which, due to their high quality level, artistic scope or high craftsmanship of the products, denote superior quality compared to the competition and/or a highly distinctive and recognizable positioning.
“Artifex – declared the Councilor for Economic Development, Alessandro Delli Noci – has the objective of bringing out and enhancing the Apulian artistic and traditional handicraft businesses, narrating their creative abilities, excellent products, production events, but also highlighting the stories of people and traditional production techniques, heritage of the Apulian territory, its past and its present. The Apulia Region has, in recent years, launched an important work of enhancing the Apulian excellence in the handicraft sector, also by supporting and encouraging the process of internationalization of handicraft companies in the world. A unique opportunity – concluded Delli Noci – to make our products, our traditions and our ability to innovate known”.
