New Traditional: Heritage, Craftsmanship and Local Identity


A new generation wants to lead a more meaningful and sustainable life by reconnecting with heritage and traditions. This publication tells the stories of those devoting their energy, skills, and creativity to crafts such as blacksmithing, distilling spirits, and globe making, and its authors revisit the customs of growing old varieties of apples, beekeeping, and producing honey in gardens or on rooftops, and being modern shepherds in Italy or Iceland. They always seek to help preserve cultural traditions and share them with like-minded people.
