Resign Academy, in collaboration with the gallery Subalterno1 and the on-line store Autoproduzioni Italiane, presents Manufacto, a series of workshops aimed to investigate the production potential, linked to the design, of some of the most important Italian excellent craftsmanship. The first edition was held at the historical bronze foundry Battaglia in Milan. The second edition was about ceramic and it took place in Faenza in different places, Museo Carlo Zauli, Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche and Bottega Gatti. Some special guests like Odoardo Fioravanti, Stefano Caggiano, Carlo Contin or Studio Sovrappensiero help us with special lecture to guide every students towards his own personal design concept. This is really important because at the end of the 3 days of workshop, a jury composed by Subalterno1, Resign Academy and the craftsman, will select a project, financing its production and putting it on sale in the on-line store, giving to the selected student the precious and unique opportunity to follow the production and see the realization of his own idea.
