The Fair

FLORENCE – FORTEZZA DA BASSO / H. 10.30 – 22.30

Know-how since 1931

1931. The dawn of the know-how.
The Handicrafts Trade Faire has its roots in history.
It was originally born as an extension of the Florence Corporations of Workers.
Following the war break-out, the Fair was forced to stop. After war, it opened again with a new and fresh international approach.
The years of the economic boom encouraged the international character of the fair, which quickly became the centre of the attention in the world of high quality handicraft products.

Here you can discover the best creativity and inspiration of master artisans coming from every country in the world.

This is where beauty originates – the cradle of arts and craft expertise.

The history of the Fair

Spring, handicrafts and…

Welcome to the exhibition

Spring welcomes visitors to the Mostra Internazionale dell’Artigianato fair to spend their days
walking around the Fortezza da Basso from a pavilion to the other, between history and modernity.
The craftsmanship blossoms on hot April days.
Visiting the Mostra Internazionale dell’Artigianato fair is an opportunity to get to know Florence and its beautiful art, starting from the Fortezza da Basso venue.
Built in the first half of the 16th century, in order to ensure the Medici Family about the control of the city, today it is the location
of the florentine exhibition center.

A strategic position in the center

Near the Fortezza da Basso you can find many parking lots. You need to walk just 5 minutes to reach the most central station, Santa Maria Novella, which is well connected to the Florence Airport by public transports (taxi, bus and tram).

Wide entrances and rational routes allow quick access to the pavilions and easy logistics for the internal handling of vehicles.
