Sunday, January 11 ended the fifth edition of "Masters in the exhibition" The exhibition dedicated to the ancient art of Neapolitan crib, this year, given the temporary unavailability of Villa Fiorentino, was set up in the marquee square Veniero. A great success for the event that exceeded all attendance records of previous editions: guests who have visited the exhibition have been 43,380, over 35% more than last year, which had already recorded record numbers. These data confirm the growing appeal of the old customs levy.
Sorrento has certainly experienced a Christmas frame, with tourists and guests who have often recorded the sold out in town: this has contributed in an extraordinary way to confirm a positive trend, driven also by the program of initiatives "M'illumino winter" that characterizes the Christmas season in Sorrento and that "Masters on display" is the flagship.
But the great merit of this result is, above all, masters of exhibitors from all over Campania, who passionately created 47 small and large masterpieces fruit of a craft that increasingly becomes art.
A big thank you to all those who so with their works of art make the success of this event.
