Lorenzo de' Medici and Simoneta Gómez-Acebo in conversation

Arts & Crafts vs. Technology

Venue: Torreón de Lozoya

Many people wonder what place academic disciplines have in the art schools of the 21st century and in a society where technology tends to take centre stage. How do we understand handcrafts, knowledge of materials, traditional craft techniques, new technologies and human creativity in this context?

A member of one of the most emblematic and representative families of European collectionism from the Renaissance to the present day, direct heir to a history tied to the most admired art in the world, Lorenzo de' Medici will discuss the subject with Simoneta Gómez-Acebo, representative of the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, and active member of the Contemporanea de Artes y Oficios (Contemporary Association of Arts and Crafts, CAO).

The conversation will be introduced by Belén Llamas Ferrier, president of the CAO.
