Exhibitions and Fairs in Marina di Carrara
Marina di Carrara is a seaside resort in the municipality of Carrara that boasts an important exhibition centre: CarraraFiere. The town's economy is primarily based on the tourism, boating and the Fair, home of exhibitions throughout the year. This combination is particularly visible in the activities of the Club Nautico. From an industrial point of view, worth a mention the Cantieri Apuania, specializing in the construction of cruise ferries.
