ersaie, the international tile and bathroom fixtures and fittings fair, now in its 34th edition, is on from the 26th until the 30th September 2016. Without a doubt, Cersaie is one of the most prestigious fairs in the world of bathroom interiors, and as always it’ll be jam packed with exhibitions and events.
Disegna la tua casa (lit. design your home) is possibly one of the most interesting events for the general public. In fact, just like past years, visitors will have a chance to meet and receive free advice from editors of some of the most important Italian interior design periodicals, as well as the in-house design teams of firms at the fair (but you must book in advance on the Cersaie website).
Plus, Bologna Design Week, run in conjunction with the fair, is back for a second time. On from the 28th September to the 1st October 2016, Bologna Design Week focuses on bringing design knowledge to the most famous spots of the city of Bologna. This year, there’ll be seven different itineraries, each one with a different theme, which will touch even more locations than last year. This is an attempt to take visitors to the most evocative places Bologna has to offer, and a chance to see the town’s landmark buildings under a new light and through a variety of different installations, exhibitions and talks.
Definitely, worth a mention are: Amare Gio Ponti a medium-length film by Francesca Molteni, the exhibition A’ Design Award & Competition which groups some of the best design projects from 2015-16, the exhibition Dimensions of Design overseen by Vitra Design Museum and the exhibition Disserzioni sul quotidiano with Alberto Meda, Marco Zanuso jr and Marco Zito.
Overseen by Lorena Zuniga in partnership with Bologna Design Week, the exhibition Fashion & Design will be a must for all you fashionistas out there. Fashion & Design is housed in the old Atelier Corradi, which, especially for this occasion, has been turned in a showroom for fashion designers from all around the world.
Furthermore, there’ll be plenty of social gatherings and recreational moments to be had, and be sure to visit the many open-house events of some of the best interior design showrooms and galleries around.
