MIDA 2020 changes dates: the 84th International Craft Show will take place from 16 to 20 December, again at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence

Founded in Florence in 1931, the International Handicraft Exhibition is the first exhibition-market of handicrafts in Italy and is still today the most important event dedicated to the excellence of craftsmanship in the world. In order to transform this moment of crisis into an opportunity for growth, to continue to sustain artisans and companies, and to contribute energetically to the sector's relaunch on the global market, MIDA 2020, the 84th International Handicrafts Exhibition, scheduled from April 24 to May 1, has been postponed from December 16 to 20, again in its historic setting of the Fortezza da Basso. In these months, the construction of Emporio MIDA is planned: a permanent digital vetrine dedicated to our exhibitors. A project to build the future of crafts together.
