After a lot of planning and behind the scenes work by a few (an amazingly few but incredibly dedicated) people the five day arts & music, Mostra dell'Artigianato Artistico Mondovì came and went in a flurry of activities, exhibits, artisanal products, live concerts and good times every day from 4:00pm til midnight. It was wonderful to see the 'sleeping beauty' Piazza Maggiore wake and put on her dancing shoes, for just a bit.
Kate was thrilled with the beautiful salon proposed for displaying her works. The fair had an overall attendance of over 24,000; other photographers' works were on display too, another one of the 'new initiatives' undertaken to make the fair more widely appealing this year. The owners of the palazzo where the photographic and other works were displayed were so pleased with the overall exhibitions put on there that they have decided to extend those exhibits another two weeks (until 26 August).
