And a lot of surprises are waiting for all our friends who will come and meet us on this special occasion!
A unique chance to meet in person these beloved authors, to see their works and, why not, to ask them an autograph, to make some pictures with them to remember this experience forever.
This event is a wonderful occasion to meet these popular designers, to meet them in person and to closely admire their creations, by learning directly from them their techniques and little secrets.
The event is completely free and it will take place, as usual, at the Relais Santa Flora, a typical Tuscan villa near Arezzo.
The classes by McKenna and Alessandra, as well as the demonstration by Marie-Thèrése will be held on Saturday in the afternoon.
The participation to the classed and the demonstration is limited to a specific and closed number of people - read here the rules to participate.
Aware of the fact that we cannot satisfy all the requests we will receive, for evident motifs related to the available space, we will prepare a summary about the classes and the demonstration we will publish after the Festa.
