The project extended by UNIC (National Union Tanning Industry) to other Italian tanneries districts, including Arzignano, involves an average of 1,000 students each year. The students are from lower secondary school, and they get knowledge on the tannery industry at school and in the field, visiting companies and industrial facilities related to the tanning factories and participating at the fair LINEAPELLE, where the leather works created by the students under the coordination of the teachers of art, will be awarded.
