Area 49 - located at the main entrance to the Exhibition Centre, next to the Quadriportico - will this year be hosting, as part of Cersaie, the world of tile laying, with an important series of events running through the exhibition itself.
For its fifth edition, Città della Posa will be hosting the EUF Workshop on 27 and 28 September, at which 20 tile installers from around Europe, divided into five mixed teams, will demonstrate the laying of "Thin XXL Panels" (handling, cutting, laying and maintaining thin large size panels), creating complex installations on the basis of technical drawings under the supervision of Peter Goegebeur, the Flemish ceramics master and President of the EUF Technical Commission.
One large area will be occupied by Assoposa (the National Association of Ceramic Tile Installers), whose ceramics masters will be demoing large and thin formats and indoors and outdoors coverings for all visitors to Cersaie.
On 26-29-30 September, Assoposa will create an architectural structure covered in ceramics, to illustrate the enormous versatility of ceramics in construction and architectural applications.
In the afternoons of the same days, architects and designers will be able to attend a series of four hour seminars on laying techniques. Attendance at the seminars constitutes 4 instructional credits recognised by the National Council of Architects. The meetings will also enable professional visitors to see and touch for themselves the works in progress in Area 49.
On the afternoon of Wednesday 28 September, Area 49 will be hosting a more spectacular event. The forty strong Coro Stelutis choir, from Bologna will be singing popular work songs: work on the installations will stop during the event so as not to spoil the beauty of the music.
