School and Workshop: a unique reality

In the past Bottega was the place of production, where, through an inseparable and very personal mixture of technique, experience, expertise, creativity and "know how", objects were created to satisfy the needs for which they were created for as long as possible. But the Shop was also the place where the younger ones were trained: observing the Master's work, carrying out more and more complex parts of work, the apprentice developed his own personal competence.

Even today, in the computer age when everyone thinks that everything can be learned with a Youtube video, we believe that training in the shop is of unvaluable importance. Here knowledge and experience are acquired through direct contact with someone who has a great competence in the subject. Through the imitation of the Master's work as a model but also with its correction where necessary.

For this reason the Bottega Filistrucchi is not only a place for the production of wigs, prosthetics and masks, but it is also a workshop accredited by the Tuscany Region (BS0983) for the training of students in the field of theatrical make-up and the production of masks. A place where you can learn the ancient work in the shop just like it used to be: combining the work of the Bottega with that of the transmission of knowledge.
All courses take place at our headquarters in Via Giuseppe Verdi 9 in Florence.
Admission to courses / laboratories will take place after interview and will only be possible at the discretion of the Bottega teachers.
