Yesterday, September 22, was the first day of Cersaie 2014 -- the 32nd edition of the most popular ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings  trade show in the world. One of the highlights of yesterday was an international press conference, led by Armando Cafiero, managing directe of Confindustria Ceramica, with participation from industry professionals including Roberto Luongo, general director of ICE-Agenzia; Luciano Vecchi, regional minister of economic development and green economy; Emilio Mussini, chairman for promotional activities; Andrea Serri, editor of Cer Magazine; and Francesco Dal Co, editor of Casabella. The conference discussed many aspects of the global market and recent trends, and ended with engaging the audience in an interactive Q&A.
