Double Signature. A dialogue between design and artisanal excellence


Doppia Firma is a project that brings together innovative designers and excellent artisans to create a unique collection of original works. Each of the objects carry two signatures – doppia firma, in Italian – as each is the outcome of the collaboration between a designer and a uniquely skilled craftsperson.

Presented by the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, Doppia Firma is a project by Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’arte with Living Corriere della Sera, that provides a platform for a vibrant dialogue between the craftsperson and designer to develop new artworks that combine the finest métiers d’art expertise and contemporary design culture. It offers craftspeople the chance to explore new realms of expression while giving designers an opportunity to be inspired by new techniques, materials and practices in order to secure both their futures and inspire a cultural movement of excellence. On the occasion of its first edition, in 2016, Doppia Firma had been supported by YOOX.
