The Cultural Association "Armadillo Club" would like to present the ACOUSTIC GUITAR VILLAGE, an exhibition area totally dedicated to the acoustic guitar, classical and modern, inside Cremona Mondomusica, the annual international exhibition of hand-crafted musical instruments held at the Cremona Exhibition Centre on 26-27-28 September 2014.
With over 13.000 visitors worldwide, over 220 exhibitors from 24 countries and other important numbers such as the presence of musicians and musical institutions, Cremona Mondomusica is the no.1 trade-show in the world for hand-crafted musical instruments and the most effective global marketplace for contemporary violin-making, a place where artistic and musical culture finds the perfect stage to express itself. To be present at Mondomusica, the world capital of lutherie, means the best way to promote and market your products.
Our Association has operated on the Italian and international scene for almost 20 years as organizers of music events and trade-shows. We have organized at Sarzana (La Spezia), Italy, since 1998, the ACOUSTIC GUITAR MEETING, which has now become one of the most important international events and trade-shows for the contemporary acoustic guitar.
The event includes: concerts with the best guitarists on the international scene, training courses and master classes on the construction of the instrument and playing techniques, a rich display of guitar luthiers and manufacturing companies of the most important brands in the industry (in recent years the event has featured approximately 130 exhibitors), meetings with important guitar associations, jam sessions, activities, conferences with the acoustic guitar as the protagonist.
An important appointment for international artists and for the most important contemporary luthiers and manufacturers in the industry, the 17th edition, which took place on the 28th May - 1st June, at the Firmafede Fortress of Sarzana, was a great success with a very significant number of visitors at the evening concerts and trade-show of guitar luthiers, import and accessories.
After the success of Sarzana we are very happy to announce an important collaboration with the Management of Cremona Exhibition Centre, which led us to launch the ACOUSTIC GUITAR VILLAGE, in which we are responsible for the art direction and organization, inside the exhibition stands of Cremona Mondomusica.
From the 26th to 28th September 2014, inside the 27th edition of Mondomusica, a dedicated exhibition space will be given to the guitar, a village, with national and international luthiers, small and large manufacturers and distributors of top brands, accessories and publishing. Guitar and luthier associations, organizations, institutes and training schools will be present. There will also be themed exhibitions, presentations of instruments of high historical and artistic value, meetings, conferences, master classes, concerts and various events dedicated to the guitar. There will be international guests and performances by great guitarists. The program is currently under preparation.
Our Association, under the direction of Alessio Ambrosi, will take care of the art direction and organization of the Acoustic Guitar Village.
