“Bottega for Bottegas”, this is the name of the new initiative of Bottega Veneta that intends to celebrate and raise awareness of Italian craftsmanship.
A desire, that of the maison of Vicenza, which stems from the desire to give visibility to some Italian artisans that best represent the creativity combined with the craftsmanship of our country.
Bottega Veneta will give visibility throughout the holiday season, through its global media power, to 12 stores scattered throughout Italy, sharing its spaces, first of all physical and then online, with the selected realities.
An offline campaign includes the display of the products of the independent stores in the maison’s physical stores in Italy and an advertising launch with classic billboards throughout the city of Milan. There is also online advertising through newsletters and dedicated spaces on the Bottega Veneta website, where consumers are redirected to purchase products directly from the companies’ websites.
This initiative will not remain unique but will be repeated with other Italian artisan stores as protagonists.
These are the 12 stores that Bottega Veneta has chosen to support:
