PERUGIA AND ITS MASTERPIECES: ARTCITY, A PRESENT REALITY WITH ANCIENT TRADITIONS

Description

In the alleys of Perugia, you can discover some of the works of art of city handicraft. These are workshops in which culture and creativity merge and create a real work of art. “ARTICITY hand made in Perugia” is a new and alternative way to visit the Umbrian chief town, searching for big and small masterpieces, manufactured by the manual ability of young designers.

It's a real marriage between the historical walls of Perugia and creativity: you can admire the wonderful “Porta San Pietro” and when you go round the corner, you will discover the old laceworks and embroideries of the Umbrian tradition. When you go along “via dei Priori” ( Priori street) you will find hand-painted ceramics of Umbrian views and sceneries; when you walk along the striking “Via Appia” (Appia street), which overlooks the aqueduct, you will enter a workshop of a cobbler, in which the smell of the leather perfectly merge with tradition and manual ability.

There is still more: from handmade puppets to the modern design of glasses, from innovative jewels to the restoration of ancient book - everything is framed into the beauty of the historical walls and into the perspectives that the town gives to its tourists.
