The organizers of the International Marble Technologies & Design Fair, Carrara Marmotec, have decided to offer clients, buyers, architects, designers, and journalists a series of events to promote both their activity and the Apuan-Versilia territory. One of them is coming up soon.
From June 10 to 18, the town of white marble, Carrara, will open its doors to White Carrara Downtown. It will be possible for everyone to discover the uniqueness of this town and its area, as well as taste local specialities, listen to concerts and follow a different show or event every evening.
On programme are special sightseeing tours to explore the elegant town centre as well as the quarries high up in the mountains, with a stop to the famous lard makers of Colonnata. Amongst the musical guests are English songwriter Sarah Jane Morris (June 11), French accordionist Richard Galliano (June 16) and Italian pianist Giovanni Allevi (June 17). There will also be sculptors working en pleine air as well as a Sculpture Guinness event.
White Carrara Downtown, however, won’t only be about art and entertainment. There will also be business meetings with architects and marble companies, boasting a participation of over 120 international operators. There will be two important B2B workshops to help boost new commercial contacts; the first focused on the marble companies and the second on the marble technologies.
