“We have not completed the exhibitors list yet, but it is almost done and we are finalizing an elaborate side program with lectures, special exhibitions and events” said Alberto Boralevi to Jozan Magazine.

Among the exhibitors are some new entries like Elisabetta Vignati, an Italian Lady from Busto Arsizio, who is particularly interested in tribal weavings and Edoardo Marino, a young Roman dealer who is trying to add a social meaning to his work as a dealer.

Edoardo Marino will present some early examples from his collection as well as a group of Afghan War rugs gathered under the motto Calpesta la Guerra (Step on War) and belonging to the CooperAction Onlus association.  The goal of this association is to promote peace and human rights through publications, events and exhibitions of War rugs.

This years special cultural exhibition will be devoted to bags and bag faces of all sorts and provenance, lent by exhibiting dealers and private collectors.

The special exhibition will be built around a very important antique piece, a large 15th century belt-bag called ‘Scarsella’ Fiorentina, loaned by the Bardini Museum of Florence. The Curator of the Bardini Museum will hold an opening speech and tell more about this early and rare piece.
