Discovering the Mantuan artistic handicraft
The discovery of the local
Mantua, rich in art and history, keeps within its walls a precious artistic patrimony and a great creativeness which has been handed down through the centuries. The group of artisans-artists "Mantua Me Genuit" of the UPA (Provincial Handicraft Union) of Mantua is evidence of this fervent artistic activity, still alive and present in our area.
The types of production are many: wrought iron, decoration, frescoes, pottery, glass decoration, wood-working, chisellings, artistic decorations with flowers, decoration of wood, decoration of porcelain, Mantuan pottery, artistic mosaics made with marble and glass enamel, leather-working, restorations and much more.
In a word, the skilled hands of these artisan-artists preserve from oblivion a productive activity based not on automatisms, but which continues, on the contrary, a tradition modelled upon the criteria and principles which define the concept itself of handicraft.
