The Bologna ceramic tile fair is the holy shrine of the industry. Thousands of people flock to Cersaie to see the latest in technologies, styles, sizes, colors, shapes, and uses. The experience is overwhelming–just when you think you’ve seen it all, you turn another corner and find a handful of football field sized pavilions filled with booths representing even more tile.

We spent today shuttling between two main pavilions where many of our vendors are located. By the end of the day, even another shot of espresso couldn’t have kept me going.
