The leading international trade fair dedicated to the stone indusry has unveiled the first previews of the 58th edition during a press lunch held last week in Milan. In the presence of design and architecture journalists, Raul Barbieri, commercial director of Veronafiere, talked about the innovations awaiting visitors at Marmomac from September 24 to 27. After presenting the figures from the previous edition, reaffirming the international vocation of the event capable of showcasing the entire excellence of the stone industry, from raw blocks to semi-finished products, machinery and technologies, to artistic and design productions, the focus shifted to the cultural and educational offerings. Giorgio Canale, curator of The Plus Theatre, introduced the exhibitions that will be set up in Hall 10, also thanks to the collaboration of renowned designers. Here, companies in the sector will be able to showcase excellence in the processing of natural stone in various applications using state-of-the-art machinery and technologies. Talks and conferences will also be hosted here for a continuous dialogue among industry professionals. Architecture and design will also be featured in Hall 1, The Matter of Stone, created in collaboration with Elle Decor Italia.
