International School of Art Crafts

The International School of Art Crafts aims to rediscover and recover the ancient paper art of the past and pass it on to new generations: a recovery plan for "ancient crafts" to promote and enhance the activities that gave prestige to the City of the Charter. Particular attention is paid to the production of handmade paper and the creation of chiaroscuro watermarks and, moreover, an experimentation space has been envisaged, through the technological innovation of nanocelluloses.

Training courses are being set up for young people up to 35 years of age. The courses, divided into different modules, with theoretical and practical lessons and final exam, will take place in the classrooms and laboratories inside the structure.
