Celebrating its fifth edition, Marmo+Mac & the City has become an event held in high regard by show-goers and the general public alike. It has helped consolidate Veronafiere’s involvement in the cultural life of the city.
As in past years, the squares and architectural settings of Verona, Italy, became the stage for an entire month, beginning on September 28, to stone works and installations. The artistic displays are the result of the excellence of natural stone sector companies who supply stone materials processed using futuristic technologies interacting with stones worked many centuries ago with rare skill by artisans and stonemasons. The intention is to demonstrate that such ancient materials are still very much up-to-date, appreciated and used even today by architects, landscapers and designers.
The exhibition unwound around the streets and squares of the historic center of Verona and each work was accompanied by a brief description to help visitors gain a better understanding of the materials, companies and designers involved in the project.
The event, organized this year by architect Laura De Stefano, is made possible thanks to collaboration between Veronafiere, Verona City Council and the Order of Architects P.P.C of the Province of Verona.
Companies taking part included: Antolini, Barsi Marmi, Consorzio Tutela Pietra della Lessinia, Associazione Nazionale Le Donne del Marmo, Franchi Umberto Marmi, Bruno Lucchetti Marmi e Graniti, Stone Group International and Travertini Paradiso.
