Historic Tabletop Brands Rediscover Macef
December 1, 2010,
MILAN, Italy-Many historic "Made in Italy" brands are returning to the Italian trade show Macef in January, including Sia, Richard Ginori and Bialetti, while several other tabletop companies, including Alessi, Villeroy & Boch, Ballarini and Barazzoni, have renewed their commitment to the show, organizers said.
"Macef is experiencing a particularly positive moment," said Marco Serioli, executive director of Fiero Milano Rassenge, which manages the show. "We are reactivating ... the virtuous cycle that led Macef to be the biggest, most important housewares industry show in the '90s."
