Furniture and more...

Fervent preparations are being made for the exhibition to be held from 21st September to October 6th at the ex-Perfosfati chemical factory in Cerea, at the heart of Verona's furniture making district.

This year marks the 47th edition of the fair dedicated to the Antique Reproduction sector and the 27th edition of the Antiques fair. The organisers of the "Mobili d'arte in stile e d'antiquariato" (Handcrafted Period Furniture and Antiques Foundation) have been working hard on this years edition to come up with some original ideas to capture the attention of visitors to the fair ( who may come to completely refurbish or to purchase a single piece of furniture), but also to see up close other kinds of handcrafts other than furniture.

An area of 500 metres squared, will host the work of about seventy craftsmen who have created beautiful objects for home interiors.

"We made an agreement with the local creative Artisans club at Villa Gritti - explained a spokesperson of the Foundation - so that there would be a solid representation of local crafts at the event. Craftwork in terracotta, floral compositions, artistic glass and ceramic craft, gold work, decoration and inlay work in wood. Not to be missed either, wrought iron craftwork and marble mosaic and inlay work. In this way we have tried to attract the visitor who is not only interested in furniture but is also interested in things related to home interiors".

The venue for the exhibition, is the old Perfosfati chemical factory, completely refurbished in red brick work. At this year's edition, the visitor can also visit the Museo Civico dell'Artigianato del Legno, a permanent museum located in the ex-factory works, showing the tools that were used by past craftsmen to make furniture.
"On this occasion and during all of the fair - explains the secretary - visitors can touch and handle the tools which were used at the time to reproduce the antique furniture pieces. The fair covers an area of six thousand metres squared with a third oval area, smaller in size which has recently been refurbished.".

The fair has been divided into areas sufficient in size to give ample room for both the exhibitors at the stands, and for visitors passing by, avoiding overcrowding when thousands of visitors arrive at the weekend. In fact ample walkways have been created.

"The grand oval area will host the antiques sector - explained one of the organisers - while the other two areas, will show the work of firms who make period reproduction furniture and the creative work of the local artisans".

The exhibition, after its inauguration ceremony, can be visited on three weekends: Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September, the following Saturday and Sunday (28th and 29th September) and finally Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October from 9.30am to 8pm.
