Fendi has published a new book that literally defines what it means to be “Made in Italy”. The A-Z guide of Italian handmade goods is structured like a dictionary reference book to impeccable craftsmanship.
“The Whispered Directory of Craftsmanship: A Contemporary Guide to the Italian Hand Making Ability,” celebrates the long history and modern tradition of Italian-made goods. Fendi's guide takes the reader on a tour of Italian artisans committed to maintaining the excellence that accompanies "Made in Italy" labels.
Letter by letter, the alphabetical book pays homage to Italian artisans of all trades. From gastronomes to Venetian glassmakers, “The Whispered Directory of Craftsmanship,” highlights the iconic work of Italian craftsmen in the fields of art, food, music, architecture and design.
The guide would make a perfect Christmas gift for the person on your list who appreciates Italy’s incomparable dedication to style. The book is currently available in English and Italian from Fendi boutiques and select bookstores.
