Exhibitions and Fairs in Vicenza
The beautiful city of Vicenza, rich in historical monuments in the Palladian style, and cultural events, is one of the most important “goldsmith districts” in Italy. VicenzaOro, held at Vicenza Exhibition Center - Fiera di Vicenza, is an international exhibition for gold, silverware and jewellery and it is one of the major trade shows worldwide.
But the economy of the city and its province is also based on fashion, with major companies such as Marzotto Group, Diesel, and Dainese for sportswear, and the beautiful Bottega Veneta for luxury goods. In the area called Zai, Agricultural Industrial Zone, and Zio, West Industrial Zone, are concentrated metallurgical, textile, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as food processing and mechanical equipment factories.
