ALBERTO, MILLER


I deal with grinding cereals (corn and buckwheat) in an ancient artisanal mill, that dates back to 1903. The company now boasts more than a hundred years of history in the grinding of corn and buckwheat; it is a family company, now at its third generation, where human touch and our experience are still a fundamental and distinctive peculiarity.
Nowadays, it remains one of the last historic mills in Trentino that is still working and is still able to produce, through a slow and careful artisanal process, typical and exclusive products.

HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

We would like to make you aware of our challenge: to work today as it used to be a long time ago. That is the reason why we want to welcome you and take you on a guided tour through our historic mill. During the visit you will be the protagonist of a full sensorial itinerary that will lead you through the colours, sounds and scents of a forgotten time.

GIORGIA, PORCELAIN

 

I'm a craftswoman from Trentino, I create a porcelain collection for the table, where each piece is unique, designed and built with the heart. I live and work in the woods, where everything is an inspiration: the light, the colours, the dry leaves and broken branches, the deer in the morning and the bright green moss...

HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

You will visit my laboratory (small!), we will chat about porcelain, a good tea will be served in my cups, sitting in the garden looking at the lake.

ANDREA, COPPERSMITH

Since 1958 we are a leader artisan company in the production of copper objects. The pioneer of this renowned handicraft lab is Pierino. His story as a coppersmith began in 1949, when this sixteen-year-old boy enters a foundry in Vela, where he acquires the secrets of the merger and a great manual ability in processing a metal bar with the mallet. In 1954 he became an apprentice coppersmith in his uncle’s shop in Trento, where he learned the subtle and delicate art of chisel and embossing. Each object, from the most basic to the most refined, is the result of a deep and careful research and it combines centuries of history, of civilization applied to artisan creativity.

HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

The visit will make you discover an extraordinary and singular studio, where the manufacturing philosophy consists in the intimate synergy and in the cultural commitment towards the promotion and rediscovery of copper. That brought us to build one of the main copper museums in Europe. With the sound of hammers and the productive work comes a unique museum reality. The family opens the doors of the incredible museum dedicated to the art of Hephaestus. An extraordinary and charming world, unknown to many, but at the same time incredibly familiar.

GIANMARIA, LUTHIER

A quality instrument improves the musician, a good musician improves a quality instrument. This is the most intimate and fascinating link that prompted me to understand more. Not as a musician (I play the cello to enjoy it, have fun and entertain, trying to snatch the secret that lets you shake), but as a luthier. The best job in the world: this is what people who chose it usually say, and it seems like many of them think that way. To produce what will actually translate gestures into music costs patience, a constant patience that grows as time goes by, when you find yourself with a soundboard ready to be painted and you realize that everything has started off from a tree trunk.

HOW THE EXPERIENCE WILL BE

I will open my lab to the curious, let them into it for a couple of hours and overview the craft of violin-making, with a brief explanation of its history, the choice of materials and the construction phases of string instruments.
