Daniele Basso - born professionally between Biella and Milan, passionate about mirrored steel surfaces - sent his support to Biella's candidacy: "I gladly support Biella's 2019 candidacy as "Crafts & Folk Art UNESCO Creative Cities Network", to contribute, as far as my limited possibilities are concerned, for the good of the city that is in my heart, and to support the values that Biella's excellences will be able to continue to spend with greater force in the world".

These are the words of the renowned artist from Biella, increasingly known in the world and engaged this year in many initiatives, including the Teatro del Silenzio in Lajatico, in the province of Pisa, where Andrea Bocelli's annual concert took place.

Thanks Daniel!
