Articity Association. In 2009 in the historic center of the city of Perugia, the cultural association ‘artisan workshops of the historic center’ was established thanks to the sensitivity of the president Maria Antonietta Taticchi and the members who, with their artisan artistic activities of tradition and innovation, promote craftsmanship, understood in its most extensive and evolved form. The association, with its programmatic intentions, gives impetus to artisan activities, located within the historic center as an ideal container for the historical-artistic importance that belongs to it, with the awareness of wanting to disseminate, protect and communicate the culture, the cultured craftsmanship of the craftsman and his product. In addition, the association, in line with the Manifesto of Artistic Craftsmanship of 2001 and the International Charter of Artistic Craftsmanship of 2010, wants to be supported and recognized by Universities, Professional Schools, Trade Associations, Institutions, to become an integral part of actions, projects, which lead to the study of the new artistic craft reality inserted in the contemporary context, to the training of new generations so that they can approach manual activities and knowledge of know-how, know-how to design, know-how to invent and to the organization of conferences, seminars, exhibitions, events for a better and correct communication regarding this sector so important for the growth of the city. Artisan enterprises are the result of a centuries-old artistic and productive tradition, rooted in the territories to which they belong and difficult to replicate elsewhere. At the same time they are bearers of universal values as productions attentive to design, project, history (International Charter of Artistic Craftsmanship).
