The 35th edition of the exhibition of artistic craftsmanship in the city of Feltre will also have an extra protagonist. These are the Dolomites which, thanks to an agreement between the Municipality of Feltre and the UNESCO Dolomites Foundation, will fully enter the program of the event, with some “dedicated” initiatives and the presence of some exhibitors from the Dolomites.
The exhibition will be accessible with free admission on Thursday evening, while for Friday and Saturday (from 17) and Sunday (for the whole day) there is an entrance ticket costing 5 euros for visitors over 15. years of age (free admission for children and reductions for large groups). A choice, that of the organizing committee to reintroduce the entrance ticket, which goes hand in hand with the further qualitative investment of the exhibition, but which will also be useful in order to monitor access in relation to the emergency linked to Covid-19. For this reason, the entrance to the Handicraft Exhibition will take place from the two gates of Porta Imperiale and Port’Oria, while the exit will be from Port’Oria and Porta Pusterla, through the old stairways.
