Visitors to Luxexpo this weekend can both the environmental Oekofoire expo and the Italia Dimensione fair showcasing the best of Italy.
The annual Oekofoire is a treasure trove for anyone interested in ecological and environment issues. The event is packed with information stands offering advice on anything from energy efficient housing to alternative forms of transport.
Highlights this year include a stand dedicated to the future of the country under the theme, “What direction is Luxembourg headed?” Visitors can gather information and join in active discussions about policy and about the negotiations surrounding the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
Another focus will be on clothing, providing information on what shoppers should look out for when wanting to buy ecologically sound clothes.
The repair café will also be operating at the Oekofoire, allowing visitors to bring broken devices or torn clothing, anything from toasters to chairs, from pullovers to mobile phones, to be repaired for free.
And food also play an important role at the fair, with a section given over to the preparation of finger food with show cooking demonstrations and advice.
Over the same weekend, Italia Dimensione 2000, the fair organised by the Camera di Commercio Italo-Lussemburghese under the patronage of the Italian embassy, returns to LuxExpo.
The fair showcases the best Italy has to offer in wine and gastronomy as well as tourism and furniture design. Classic Italian cars and scooters including Vespas will also be on show.
This year’s host region is Veneto, which not only includes the city of Venice but also takes in part of the Dolomites and the Alps and borders Lake Garda. The region produces some great wine, cheese, salamis and meats and of course grappa.
