After a successful first edition, Biella will host the second edition from 26 to 28 October. The initiative was prompted by an idea of Cristiano Gatti, aiming at supporting high artistic craftsmanship, as an expression of Italian beauty's legacy. Within the evocative scenery of Biella Piazzo, inside the historical Palazzo Ferrero and Palazzo La Marmora, the event will feature the art of great master artisans.
The exhibition will showcase exclusive productions, the result of an intense dialogue between ancient and contemporary gestures, matter, tradition and innovation, and will include all sectors, from glass to paper, from textiles to iron, from jewellery to wood, up to decoration and bookbinding. Furthermore, visitors will be offered a more immersive experience, as master craftsmen from across Italy will be present to disclose to the public the different phases of the creation of their products. Collateral events, such as workshops, food and wine tasting sessions, as well as in-depth and training opportunities, will enliven the exhibition.
