The third edition of the International Art and Restoration Fair of Florence will take place from 8-10 November 2012
at the Fortezza da Basso. This year the Fair is hosting its first STUDENTS & WORK EVENT, an area reserved for
training and job orientation for young people in the world of conservation, restoration, design and creative industries,
tourism, management and fruition of cultural and environmental heritage.

Schools, universities, institutes of art, restoration and conservation as well as job orientation agencies and organisations are all invited to take part. The STUDENTS & WORK EVENT is hosted by the Fair in collaboration with Florence's International Week of Cultural and Environmental Heritage, providing a highly relevant and dynamic platform for institutions to publicise courses in the Art and Heritage sector and display projects while prospective students can learn about real job profiles and opportunities.
The vast range of seminars, conferences, round tables and workshops scheduled during the event will interest visitors and exhibitors alike, and consolidate the event’s profile as an unparalleled international showcase and cultural space in world of cultural heritage.
The Secretariat has developed a highly competitive package for exhibitors at the STUDENTS & WORK EVENT, with a marketing philosophy that permits a real balance between costs and development opportunities.

The Fortezza da Basso is a masterpiece of military Renaissance architecture. It was designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, commissioned by Duke Alessandro de’ Medici and built between 1534 and 1537. The Fortezza da Basso has always been the main venue of various cultural and creative shows and events in Florence since 1967 and it is strategically located in the historic city centre, near the main station.
This complex and prestigious location combines charming and perfectly restored historic buildings, such as the Quartieri Monumentali or the Polveriera, with modern pavilions such as the Spadolini Pavilion and the more recently built Cavaniglia Pavilion.
