An unmissable event in Lombardy
The Craft Fair in Milan is the event, which has now reached its 22nd edition, designed to gather artisans every year from all around Italy. This is a truly unmissable opportunity, awaited by enthusiasts of many sectors. Because Made in Italy at the fair does not only cover one or two categories of craftsmanship, but it really includes them all. Locksmiths, experts in glass, metal, pastry, paper or recyclable materials: there really is nothing missing!
It is really worth visiting, its a unique opportunity to open up your horizons, find interesting ideas (appreciated by all kinds of do-it-yourself lovers!) and make valuable purchases.
The value of the items that can be bought at the fair is not only due to their cost, but rather to their uniqueness: everything is handmade, and has one or more imperceptible differences that make it special and unrepeatable. The fair is perfect for both young and old, looking for entertainment but also groups of friends.
In addition, it falls every year on the festivity of the Immaculate Conception: a perfect time for anyone who wants to visit it while living far from the Lombardy capital.
