People flock to Florence from all over the world to see not only the beautiful art and architecture but also to experience the continuing traditions that date from the Renaissance. Traditions such as farming, building, cloth-making and other artisan techniques still thrive in Florence.
Recognising this, the United Nations heritage organisation UNESCO has recently opened an institute to preserve the world’s traditions and artisan crafts. The International Traditional Knowledge Institute (ITKI) was established on May 12.
