Artisans are the heart and soul of Florence. Giving us even more reason to appreciate them, there is now a charity project launched by the interior design company Riccardo Barthel, in which 121 works by 24 participating artisans will be sold in an online auction, the proceeds of which will be entirely donated to Careggi Hospital.
The auction will start at 10am on April 23 and end at 4pm on May 4, taking place online using the Pananti Auction House, who will not be applying commissions on the hammer price. Donations will be transferred directly to Careggi University Hospital.
The artisans of Florence’s generous support for health professionals is organized by Riccardo Barthel. Participating artisans are Antico Setificio Fiorentino, Bottega d’Arte Maselli, Brandimarte, Castorina, Duccio Conti Caponi Studio, Eric Bigagli Orologiario, Fratelli Piccini Gioiellieri, Fratelli Peruzzi, Galleria Romanelli, Il Bronzetto, Liverano & Liverano, Locchi, Loretta Caponi, Luca Rafanelli, Marioni, Pampaloni, Pellicceria Cioni, Ratafià Firenze, Quelle Tre, Riccardo Barthel, Roberto Giovannini, Sileno Cheloni, Studio Puck and Temple St Clair.
