Its guiding principle is the interest in textile craftsmanship as cultural expression to be maintained and handed down to next generation.
The commitment and enthusiasm on rediscovering ancient crafts have allowed several activities to be born over the years:
from 2004 to 2008
- “Il Filo di Arianna”, show organised to appreciate the female work. This has given artisan ladies the opportunity to display their handicraft works alongside streets and squares in the town centre of Zagarolo.
- “Tabacchine. Sviluppo del territorio ed emancipazione”, publication further to a search, made by Sinergie aps, on tobacco industry operating in Zagarolo between 1930 and 1970. This release gathers spoken testimonies by tobacco workingwomen from Zagarolo, documents and photos of a historical local reality in order to let everyone understand the economical and social impact which the tobacco industry had on the local area and the women's empowerment process.
