Eduardo Souto Moura. Competitions 1979-2011

For the first time in Bologna and Italy, Cersaie is presenting an exhibition celebrating the career of architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, winner of the Pritzker Prize 2011. Organised as part of the cultural programme “Building, Dwelling, Thinking”, the exhibition aims to contribute to the contemporary architectural debate that is so important for the Italian ceramic industry. The exhibition features fifty-four projects created by the architect for competitions he has participated in since he began his professional career in 1979.
The official opening in the presence of the architect will take place on 27 September, to be followed the next morning by the keynote lecture in the Palazzo dei Congressi.

Opening hours:
Tuesday to Sunday: 9.30 a.m. - 6.30 p.m.

Giving voice to ceramics

Ceramics, a versatile and malleable material used by humans since antiquity, has created forms, accommodated lights and colours and communicated ideas.
The sequence of installations of ceramic works set up in the centre of Bologna during Cersaie offers visitors an overview of this material’s expressive capabilities through the interpretations of artists of the past and present. Cersaie has chosen to place the ceramic works on loan from MIC International Ceramic Museum of Faenza in a number of museums and public venues in the city so as to highlight the link with culture – and in particular Italian ceramic culture – that underpins and continues to inspire Italian ceramic tile production.
