Before all, a dream!
Before anything, L'Arte Nascosta is a dream.
Like most dreams, it is larger than life and difficult to capture. Words are not enough. Images help; but still, not even they quite capture the immensely beautiful and captivating world that I'd like to share.
To describe it, is to describe centuries of history and traditions, invasions and conquests, discoveries and innovations, great places and the even greater minds that have occupied them. It is a task that extends far beyond the reaches of my communicative capacity, not to mention the average web user's 8-second attention span.
For this reason, L'Arte Nascosta is better described as an Artisanal adventure - a journey of discovery about the expansive, but hidden world of Italian artisanship.
To understand the history is to genuinely understand the culture. To genuinely understand the culture is to truly appreciate the lifestyle. By truly appreciating the lifestyle, we will be inspired.
Our inspiration? To discover the Italian dream, one artisan at a time, and live that dream together.
