In north eastern Italy, on the flat landscape of the Venito region, with the spectacular Dolomite mountains in the distance, sits the city on Vicenza. It is home to one of the premier art showcases around the world, called Abilmente, with a spring showing on March 3-6, 2011, and a fall showing to be held October 20 to October 23, 2011 at the Fiera di Vicenza (Fair of Vicenza) located at Via dell Oreficeria 16, Vicenza, Venito, Italy.

A feature of Abilmente are the “Workshops”(or Ateliers), spaces where the practical aspects and exhibitions combine. The settings will highlight the work of leading artists in each sector, providing plenty of ideas to others. There are chances to participate in several courses held by the leading associations and artists in each sector. The planned workshops are: “A Voyage into the World of Color”, “Patchwork” “Natural Dye” “DIY Fashion: Bijoux and Accessories” and “Creating with Paper”:

This year in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the Union of Italy, there is a special Creative Workshop (called Patchwork Atelier). Here the Associazione Nazionale Quilt Italia, the star of this workshop, presents the Italian cultures, images and landscapes of the regions that have united to make Italy a truly great nation. The show will display, through original pieces of patchwork quilt, the distinctive features that characterize each individual region.

The website for Abilmente, http://www.abilmente.org/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=1764 contains information about how to come to the show including prices, maps and information about where to stay, for the October 20-23, 2011 fall showing.

So fashion your 2011 fall tour of Italy around a visit to the Venito region!!
