Cartoline for Unesco

Five bags, five places that are recognized as World Heritage sites by UNESCO.

  • The Great Wall of China
  • The Acropolis of Athens
  • The Giza pyramids
  • Naples (the Spanish Quarters)
  • The city of Salzburg

Braccialini has become a spokesperson for the values promoted by UNESCO. To this end, the Cartoline (Postcards) line that are part of the “Tua” by Braccialini Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 collection, features a series of five bags depicting images from some of the places recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO.

Throught this initiative, Braccialini has donated part of the sales proceeds of these bags to the Italian Commission for UNESCO, to allow the customers to share the ideologies and to give a concrete contribution to protect these sites of exceptional importance.

UNESCO has devolved the funds donated by Braccialini to the Unesco Week of Education for Sustainable Development, whose third edition took place last November 2009 on the issue of CITY and ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP.

This event has been addressed primarily to local communities, city governments and private enterprises in order to develop operational capabilities and raise awareness on the issues relating to the construction of an environmentally friendly and solidarity-based ‘city’, grounded on new lifestyles that pivot on the concepts of accountability and active participation.

Today, Braccialini is among the most modern enterprises, deeply committed to the themes of environmental protection and sustainable development.
