This exhibition was conceived in honour of the 150yearsof Italian Unity in order to tell the new creations and products of the metropolitan, forward-looking and international handicraft, which is also linked to Italian culture and traditions. Such an exhibition is made up of 3 main sections:

1. “Tunnel del treno fantasma” highlights the handicraft of technological digital sector; a corridor towards the future animated by a multimedia installation reminding the railways.

2. The central space of the exhibition is called “Nuove officine”. Here there are the most innovative projects in the field of mechanical technology and traditional arts, designed by young, emerging and emigrant talents who spread the quality of Italian products around the world.

3. The third section of the exhibition, Galleria delle Botteghe, hosts the best of modern handicrafts. The objects in this space represent Italian culture and traditions: an “art & crafts supermarket” with admission free, conceived for supporting such jobs and offers the chance to buy the pieces shown.
