Carrara Studi Aperti 2024: The Event

In Carrara everything is ready for a new edition of Carrara Studi Aperti, the event that for more than ten years allows visitors from all over Italy to know the enchanting history of the city, linked to the world of art and crafts.

In this town of almost 60.000 people under the Apuan Alps, 30% of the population is in fact composed of artists and artisans, making it a unique space where you can breathe the scent of creativity at every corner.

To celebrate this union, Saturday 8 and Sunday, June 9, 2024, artists and artisans will open their workshops to allow you to enter, through the "doors" of Carrara Studi Aperti, in their daily activities, where color and matter come together to give life to art productions: final works of their effort, their ingenuity and their imagination. All, coordinated and organized by the non-profit association A.P.S. "Oltre".

The opening of the event will be held Friday, June 7, 2024 in Piazza Duomo in Carrara from 18:30 and includes greetings from the organizers, institutions, a talk and a music concert.

Carrara Studi Aperti collects a series of proposals created in a synergistic and targeted by workers of different artistic fields, including sculpture, painting, theater, ceramics, multimedia installations and many other disciplines, aimed at preserving the artistic and cultural memory of the city of Carrara.

The event aims to bring to light the beauty of the ancient streets of the city by creating artistic paths with installations, performances, paintings, educational courses, workshops that allow the people involved, to the public, to tourists to become more aware of the history and origins of the territory.

As in previous editions, which are part of Carrara’s membership in the circuit of Creative Cities recognized by UNESCO, the focus of the event will be represented by guided tours, which can be accessed, from May 20, by booking by email to or by phone, calling +39 379 2905601, from 10:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 18:00 from Monday to Friday. Subject to availability, it will be possible to register for the visits also on the days of the event, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9, from 10:00 to 14:00.


New this year will be hiking and e-bike to visit the studies in the mountains. You can still freely visit all the studios and ateliers during the opening hours to the public and get a map of the workshops by downloading it here or at the Exhibition Info Point set up in via Santa Maria 13F (old sign "Fruzzetti") open from the beginning of the event until the end of September, on the occasion of the closure of White Carrara (event with which the association has formed a collaboration).

From 20:00 of each day will follow side events in laboratories, shops and squares such as book presentations, concerts and artistic performances organized, the details of which will be available in the days before the event.

To accompany the event during the two days, will be the graphics of the Russian artist Xenia Guscina, which portrays two female figures, symbolically divine mediators, who become carriers of the working tools of artists and artisans, surrounded by an atmosphere full of hope for the future that recalls the universal values of solidarity and sisterhood. 

During Carrara Studi Aperti, local merchants that have joined the initiative will guarantee to the benefit of visitors of the slow food culinary experiences, ensuring affordable prices. These exercises will be indicated in the maps related to the event.

The event uses the logistical support of Pubblica Assistenza di Carrara and other territorial realities and was made possible thanks to the contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Carrara and the patronage of the Municipality of Carrara, whom we thank for their support.

To support the initiative, participants will be asked to sign up for membership through membership (cost 10 euro).
