Marratxi ceramics fair
The Fira del Fang, which gets under way on Saturday, is the thirty-sixth edition of an event that celebrates the clay (fang) that abounds in Marratxí and what that clay produces - ceramics. The fair is dedicated to artisan ceramic products and it was established in 1984 with the precise intention of supporting the labours of ceramicists, especially those from Marratxí. In the past, the fair has been honoured by receiving a national prize from the Spanish Association of Ceramics' Towns. The fair has contributed to the "prestige and diffusion of Spanish ceramics".
