A real guide Italian craftsmanship commissioned by Fendi has always been synonymous with research and manufacturing quality. Why tell the "handmade" is telling Italy and its history, but also share a way of working that is also a way of being Italian, and express the culture of know-how. A volume constructed as a column for entries: for each item, for each letter, the pages list the names of craftsmen, places of origin, denomination. The structure allows contamination in content always stimulating, never undermine the immediacy of understanding and glance. Not a book of admissions, but a book of "interventions" in the great contemporary discussion purely on the "handmade".
