Giancarlo Civita, chairman of Abril, Casa Cor’s parent company, and Antonio Barreto, CEO of Casa Cor Miami, hosted a dinner at Faena Hotel Miami Beach to discuss the showhouse. “We are very happy and honored to be launching Casa Cor here in Miami,” Civita said to a table of 20 designers, architects, landscape architects and manufacturers representing local, national and international markets. The city “is the obvious gateway for Casa Cor to the United States.”

“Miami is an exciting market of diverse and rich cultures, a perfect canvas for designers to exhibit their best work and one of the most creative cities in the Americas,” Barreto said at the dinner. “Casa Cor will showcase our designers’ work to the world.”
