Sotto40 is an event reserved for young artisans, designers and creatives. All under 40, practically kids. Three days to show that craftsmanship is not just tradition, but knows how to look to the future. Sotto40 is also the philosophy that has always characterized LeArtigiane: proposing new ideas and unique objects, curated and destined to make a trend.
