The Embassy of Italy in Nur-Sultan has launched a new integrated promotional programme entitled “Mani esperte” (“Expert Hands”). With its innovative format, the programme aims to recount the union between Italy’s creative spirit and the quality of its workmanship. About ten events are planned for 2022, as part of the broader programme of initiatives to mark 30 years of diplomatic relations between Italy and Kazakhstan.

“We are delighted to be launching this new integrated promotional programme that will continue throughout 2022. We want to promote our country in an innovative way, by telling the stories of our creative ‘expert hands’”, said Ambassador Marco Alberti. “Behind the artistic-cultural and economic-industrial excellence of our country”, he added, “there are always expert hands at work. Whether these be the hands of farmers or multi-starred chefs, designers or artisans, violinists or engine or shoe makers, Italians’ expert hands have the ability to transform the talent of our people into products or experiences that are world-beating in their originality and quality”.

The first event, “Dal legno alla melodia: due maestri all’opera” (“From wood to melody: two maestri at work”), organised by the Italian Embassy along with Kazakhstan’s National University of the Arts and the Museo del Violino in Cremona, took place on 17 February 2022. The event featured a performance by the renowned Italian violinist, Domenico Nordio. Before the performance Alessandro Voltini, a master luthier from Cremona, in Lombardy, told the wonderful story of the city’s stringed instruments craft. A story that dates back nearly 500 years, from its beginnings in artisan workshops to its still unique position at world level, inimitable even using the most sophisticated technology.
