The Florence Art and Restoration Fair will be a great showcase dedicated to everybody working in the sector and through sharing knowledge and know-how people will be able to interact with the aim of working towards the consolidation of our country’s strong image in the production of works of art, training of young people, conservation, restoration and the promotion of cultural and environmental heritage.
Once again, the Fair will be an event of international standing working in partnership with the 18th International Assembly of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS)which will take place at the same time as the Fair. The triennial meeting of 1500 international delegates, will dicuss the theme of “Heritage and Landscape as Human Values”. With ICOMOS we will promote collaboration between high-profile partners and organise B2B meetings, aimed at encouraging dialogue and cooperation between Italian and foreign companies and sharing of information, the latest research and trends.
This year, Fair will also host delegations from cities which have twinning agreements with Florence and show promotional videos transmitted in accordance with the International Relations Office of the municipality of Florence.
Participating in the Fair, therefore, will allow collaboration in building projects for conservation, restoration and enhancement of the artistic, cultural and environmental Heritage.
For these reasons, the Secretariat of the Florence Art and Restoration Fair has put together a package of highly competitve rates for exhibitors in comparison to other similar national and international events embracing a marketing strategy which balances costs and real, working opportunities and trying to ensure participation in the event .
Here are the words of Cav. Sottani, president of the Florence Art and Restoration Fair …
“Florence, the Capital of Culture and City of Art and Restoration will once again be home to the fourth edition of the Art and Restoration Fair. The Fair will bring together over 300 institutions, private companies, schools and training organizations – active in the restoration, conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage – engaging in education and cultural events.
The Fair aims to provide opportunities to meet, network with and learn from the commerical, scientific and cultural -national and international- players. It will be a platform for the development of industry, research and new project initiatives in the field of restoration.
The Fair will continue as a non-profit event organised for the sole purpose to be at the service of the world of restoration of cultural heritage, through the dissemination of knowledge and giving voice to the present needs of sector specialists.
The Florence Art and Restoration Fair is a bi-annual event which you should not miss, that comes out from the dynamics of profit at any cost, typical of the exhibitions organized for profit.
We are sure that, thanks to a series of international agreements and partnerships with high-profile personalities, companies and organisations, the Fair can truly put itself at the service of culture, providing real solutions for the needs of the cultural heritage market. “
