• Year: 2023


The AvantCRAFT project, funded by the Emilia-Romagna Region’s PR-FESR 2021-2027, aims at initiating a synergistic and strategic partnership to build a digital archive of craft knowledge through the use and experimentation of digitization and advanced simulation tools.
To address the emerging needs for the preservation and enhancement of historical, artistic and industrial heritage, AvantCRAFT intends to make this heritage accessible to new generations through the digitization of craftsmanship techniques and immersive user involvement.
The partnership consists of a public-private partnership and 3 artisan enterprises, two of which pertain to the fashion and leather goods sector and a third specializing in manual sheet metal modeling (“battilastra”).


The AvantCRAFT project aims to provide a user-centered model that leverages digitization processes to facilitate and enrich the learning, preservation, and promotion of workmanship with inclusive, adaptable, intuitive, and accessible technological solutions.
