L’Artigiano in Fiera
L’artigiano in Fiera is one of the biggest international fairs that takes place in Milano ( Rho) every year between the last week on November and the first week of December.
Craftsmen from Italy, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America bring their wonderful handwork and also their tradition and cultures During this fair you’ve the opportunity to eat Chinese or Mexican food, listen to the African drums played live, buy all sort of items coming from all over the world.
Every year I make sure to visit the fair at least once, buy some Christmas gifts and enjoy the atmosphere.
This year I spoke with some of the artisans that came from Africa, precisely Ghana and Burkina Faso.
Mr George Ali Akologo, the CEO of Geolicrafts Venture in Accra , come to Artigiano in Fiera every year to represent Ghana and do business. After this fair he has other ones arount the world to attend.
His company sells only handmade baskets, beads, drums, masks and many other items making sure to promote the local artisans by exporting the goods, and giving special services to the communities that are in need in Ghana.
I just visited their website and is full of interesting items www.geolicrafts.com
