Cersaie Announces 40th Anniversary Event in Italy
Who doesn’t love a celebration? Especially when it’s in Italy. This year the festa is Cersaie’s 40th, taking place, as always, in Bologna, Italy, where international tile manufacturers and distributers converge with a global coterie of designers and architects to discover the industry’s latest offerings from both aesthetic and technological standpoints. Dates are September 25-29.
Along with products, including bathroom furnishings, come events, all of which hopefully can overcome some of the tragedy perpetrated by the May flooding of Emilia Romagna. Cersaie’s Building Dwelling Thinking cultural component, which has seen 12 Pritzker Prize laureates give keynotes, promises involvement by major figures in the design world, while the Press Cafes situated throughout the exhibition halls present venues for conversations between magazine editors and members of the design community. On view, too, will be Cersaie posters over the years, created by such super luminaries as Ettore Sottsass, Alessandro Mendini, and Interior Design Hall of Famer, Antonio Citterio.
Additionally, visitors can venture off-site to discover the charms of Bologna with its 21 towers, frescoed portici, and, of course, the city’s famous food starring tortellini, ragu, and prosciutto as headliners. Join in on the festivities.
