Cersaie 2010 will feature second edition of the Architecture Gallery

March 17, 2010

BOLOGNA, ITALY -- Because of last year's extraordinary success, Cersaie 2010 is repeating "Building Dwelling Thinking," the cultural event held in the Architecture Gallery that is both a meeting venue and an opportunity for discussion on key issues of building and materials. The International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings, which will be celebrating its 28th edition in Bologna, Italy, beginning on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, confirms its role as an important forum for the Italian and international design world.

This year's edition of "Building Dwelling Thinking" will explore the issue of climate change -- the general theme behind the entire conference program, which will investigate changes occurring both at a general level and in the specific areas of environment, society and culture. Additionally, topics regarding architectural design, trends in interior design and the use of materials, particularly ceramic tiles, will also be addressed.

First held at Cersaie 2009, "Building Dwelling Thinking" was attended by more than 4,000 professionals and featured 18 conferences and seminars held during the five days of the show. Alongside one of the most important cultural events organized in Italy in 2009 -- the Renzo Piano Keynote Address that was held in the Palazzo dei Congressi of BolognaFiere -- other outstanding conferences were given by Michele De Lucchi, Stefano Boeri, Aldo Cibic, Jan Davis, Fulvio Irace, Franco La Cecla, Italo Rota, Aldo Schiavone and Luigi Zoja.
