North American architects and designers are invited to apply for the chance to attend a CEU-accredited trip for five days at Cersaie—the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings—taking place from Sept. 27-Oct. 1, 2021 here at the Bologna Exhibition Centre.
The new initiative is organized by Confindustria Ceramica, the Italian Association of Ceramics and EdiCer SpA, the organizers of Cersaie, with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Trade Agency.
