ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO FOR THE MUSEO DI DOCCIA” is an important fund raising launched by Giorgiana Corsini and Neri Torrigiani. The project is dedicated to the Associazione Amici di Doccia [Friends of Doccia] after the meeting organized by Confindustria Firenze with Minister Dario Franceschini during the G7 for Culture which took place in Florence in March 2017. The meeting was the premise for the Doccia Museum collection, which is of inestimable value, to be once again enjoyable by the public. The collection is composed of 8.000 works in porcelain, ceramic, maiolica, terracotta, lead; more than 13.000 drawings, plates of engraved metal, chromolithographich stones, chalk moulds, wax sculptures.
- During the Exhibition, with an entrance fee [minimum offer € 8, € 6 for young people from 12 to 18 years, free for children] the public can visit the ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO Exhibition. It will be possible to donate a further contribution through the innovative device “Donachiaro”, which will be set up in the Giardino Corsini during the Fair days: this is a real “Digital Teller” – developed by Itineris Italia – and it allows for payments/donations to be made in cash, ATM or credit card… (A sort of vice-versa ATM machine!)
- Moreover, from Tuseday April 3rd, in all the 35 Unicoop Firenze stores in Tuscany (where the Boxoffice service is active), it will be possibile to make a donation and receive the entrance-ticket for the ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO Fair from May 17th to May 20th at the Giardino Corsini in Florence.
- Revenues from the Richard Ginori Pop Up shop that will be present in the Corsini Gardens during the exhibition, where porcelain objects from its renowned “Bianco” series will be on sale will be donated to Associazione Amici di Doccia [Friends of Doccia]
- And finally, during this occasion, the Florentine designer Duccio Maria Gambi, who is back in Italy after an exciting artistic activity abroad, will be producing 20 numbered works of art for ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO, the proceeds of which will be devolved in favour of the Museo di Doccia fund raising.
The Associazione Giardino Corsini with this new project renews its fundamental role in promoting and supporting cultural realities, as in the past it did when it promoted other important projects like the “Adotta un libro!” crowfdunding in collaboration with the Archive Superintendence for Tuscany and the State Archive of Florence in 2005, “Roberto Capucci ed il Casentino” in 2008, which involved the well-known designer in the Textile and Sustainability project created by CNR-Ibimet to promote the processing of vegetal fibres of the territory, and the 2012 crowdfunding of Leitmotif in cooperation with the Center for Research, Production and Musical Didactics “Tempo Reale” which allowed the execution of a concert of contemporary music.
The funds raised with all these initiatives will be donated to the Associazione Amici di Doccia to support the re-opening of the Museum.
