The partnership with Fidenza Village has this year given birth to miarteducational, a new mediation service available to the public in the form of free guided tours by appointment on 13, 14 and 15 April 2018 at 2:00 pm, 3:30 pm and 5 pm. The visits are intended to explore the artistic and historical contents of the stands, with particular attention to the Generations and Decades sections.
In order to book your visit, please come to the fair and stop by miarteducational booth powered by Fidenza Village.

miart educational has been made possible thanks to the increased involvement of Fidenza Village, one of the 11 Villages of Value Retail's Bicester Village Shopping Collection, a partner of the Fidenza Village Prize for Generations since 2017. Fidenza Village supports miart in this new training initiative inspired by a conception of art as an opportunity for individual and collective growth and the desire to think of the fair as a promoter of knowledge and culture.
