The Event

Walking routes through the art studios, downloadable itineraries with QRcode and guides available to visitors for a widespread event, increasingly smart and in line with the growing environmental awareness. This and more will be Carrara Studi Aperti 2022, the event scheduled in the capital of marble for the weekend of 17-18 September, organized for the 10th consecutive year by "Oltre" Association in collaboration with UNESCO Carrara Creative City. An edition expected, which promises a renewed journey through the laboratories of our area, to discover a unique reality in the world. From traditional processing techniques to new technologies, Studi Aperti remains an exhibition open to creativity in all its forms, an appointment not to be missed to enter those spaces, often hidden, where artists and artisans from all over Italy and abroad make their masterpieces.

The guided tours will be an opportunity to learn about the history of the workshops, following itineraries that cross the historical fountains of the city, traced on Google Maps to allow participants to quench their thirst along the way and fill the bottles of the association "Oltre", available with a small contribution. A way to promote, together with art, habits in name of sustainability.

The two-day event will be anticipated by Carrara Studi Aperti Festival, which will take place in the picturesque setting of Piazza delle Erbe from 18.00 on Friday, September 16th. A preview designed to launch the partnership with the mudaC, the Carrara Museum of Arts that, under the guidance of director Laura Barreca, will organize meetings and free workshops as part of the project "About the reconciliation between art, crafts and design" curated by Maria Rosa Sossai in collaboration with Carrara Academy of Fine Arts. The mudaC will also be one of the stages of the guided tours of Carrara Studi Aperti with the showing of "Hands at work" documentary inside the museum’s Project Room. The art workshops will be freely open on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September, from 15.00 to 20.00, following the digital map downloadable on this website or available at the infopoints located in the city.
