Homo Faber 2018
Covering nearly 4,000 square metres, Homo Faber will offer the public a rare opportunity to explore the island and the magnificent complex of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, including areas that are generally not accessible to the public.
Organized by the Michelangelo Foundation, the international cultural eventwill showcase fine contemporary, traditional and rare craftsmanship, and its relation with the world of design and creativity. Visitors will be able to meet master artisans or virtually enter their workshops, to observe conservators at work and wander through worlds of fine craftsmanship.
“Exponential growth has also carried with it a few losses though. When it comes to luxury, one of them, quite simply, is fun: the fun of discovery”
It will be an experience of a lifetime! Being able to meet master artisans and find more about their know-how through live demonstrations, and much more.
You’ll be able to listen to new ideas and expert voices throughout the program of Creativity and Craftsmanship Conferences. From breathtaking jewelry to bespoke bicycles, from fascinating skills on the brink of disappearing to some of the most sought after icons associated with European style, Homo Faber will cover a wide range of materials and disciplines and celebrates the human spirit and talent of the creators.
From 14th to 30th September, every afternoon in the Squero hall at Homo Faber, the protagonists of craftsmanship and artistic and creative excellence will share their vision and discuss with the public.
Meet the face of the future of European fine craftsmanship
A unique educational initiative of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini and the Michelangelo Foundation, the Young Ambassador programme brings some of the most talented and motivated students of the applied arts and design to Homo Faber.
Over 100 students were carefully selected from 26 top European educational establishments which are part of the Michelangelo Foundation’s network of like-minded organizations.
Infectiously enthusiastic about design and craftsmanship, coming from 15 different countries and speaking 20 languages, the Young Ambassadors will immerse themselves in the content of each of Homo Faber’s 14 exhibit spaces and share their passion and knowledge with visitors.
