The city of Montelupo Fiorentino and the Foundation try to support the ceramic production as well the factories with new cooperations.
Smart project for example is an online teaching catalogue to be used in the classroom through video tutorials and work kits that will be delivered to schools, groups and interested associations.
The project, which also saw the collaboration of the teachers of the school, has obtained a funding of 18,000 euros from the Call cultural workshops 2020 of the Foundation of Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze.
