The Bottega del Biginaio was born in order not to lose the memory of the "mestiere del bigonaio" (craft of the bigonaio) (realization of wooden containers for the collection of grapes), occupation that has characterized for centuries the country of Moggiona. The initiative will consist of a meeting with two masters who will show the art of this craft.

According to studies, around the last century in the small town of Moggiona were still active 26 stores, with more than 50 chandeliers at work. Virtually everyone in the country did this job, until the advent of plastic, it determined the end of this.
The meeting will take place on August 9 in Moggiona (Poppi), at La Bottega del Biginaio, where at 17.00 there will be a meeting with two real masters of wood that will realize in front of the participants some artifacts related to the ancient art of the bigonio.
