The Residency program of EDIT Napoli is fully committed to the territory and its heritage.
It recognizes and protects the importance of the local traditions. The program connects international designers with traditional Italian artisans for a full month of collaborative living and making.
Hand in hand they will produce a collection of unique pieces conceived by bridging different knowledge, local with global, past and present, ownership and authorship.
The Residency of EDIT Napoli is proposing a new land of possibilities for the future of historical craftsmanship.
Our first three designers have been selected for the launch of the program, starting September 2018.
The outcome of their creative journey will be produced under the label Made in EDIT and commercialized and presented at EDIT Napoli.
