Cersaie and ExpoGreen have reached an agreement to create Green Street, a major new exhibition event. The aim of the agreement between Cersaie, the international exhibition of ceramic tiles and bathroom furnishings, and the International outdoor exhibition ExpoGreen are to pursue sustainable development through the promotion of green spaces and the use of ceramic tiles, a product created from natural raw materials using a process that minimizes environmental impact.

The event will run from the beginning of ExpoGreen (September 11-13, 2009) until the end of Cersaie (September 29 through October 3) and will be located in a more than 4,500 square meter external area alongside hall 32 in the Bologna exhibition center.

This large green space will be open to visitors to both international shows and will feature specific theme areas. Green Street consists of “Biolago” (Bio-lake), a reproduction of a lake; the “Fattoria del futuro” (Farm of the future), a zero-impact structure which will also feature vegetable gardens; the “Bosco Magico” (The Magic Wood); the “Labirinto” (Maze), a ceramic maze with walls formed from hedges; the “Giardino in corso” (Garden in progress), a work in progress consisting of flowerbeds and green spaces; and “Giardini” (Gardens), a nationwide competition for landscape architects who will offer their own interpretations of green spaces through eye-catching exhibits.
