Although we must admit the Alitalia plane ride was a bit long, the 156,000 square meter tile and bath show (the world’s largest!), delicious Italian meals and amazing shopping made it worth every minute. We spent 5 glorious days in Bologna, Italy as part of a delegation of US and Canadian journalists, architects and designers – all of us there to celebrate Cersaie’s 25-year anniversary edition. Show highlights included a seminar by Swiss architect Mario Botta, a cool central exhibit showcasing 16 famous artworks which were recreated in Italian tile as well as miles and miles of beautiful tiles in all formats (including 3m x 1m – WOW!), glamorous decorative wall ceramics and stunning bathroom furnishings from companies including S.I.M.A.S. At the end of the week, Cersaie 2007 saw close to 92,000 attendees, a record-breaking number of guests.

Even though we have been back for two days, we’re still dreaming of tile (and that incredible stracciatella gelato.)
