Fabrica | Treviso, Italy

Fabrica

Fabrica is a research centre for modern communication. Established in 1994 from a vision of Luciano Benetton and Oliviero Toscani, it is based in Treviso, Italy, in a space of magical architecture restored and augmented by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

A renaissance-inspired, learning-by-doing approach, where curious, restless, ambitious, generous, free-thinking talents from all over the world experiment contemporary communication through a constant contamination between different disciplines, such as photography, design, video, graphic design, and digital.

Fabrica also organizes a continuous cycle of workshops, lectures and training experiences where the worlds of art, culture and research meet to develop new ideas. Internationally renowned architects, musicians, historians, designers, artists, interaction designers, art directors and sociologists collaborate with Fabrica.

Fabrica is located in the prestigious Villa Pastega Manera enlarged by Tadao Ando. The area covers 51,000 square meters and it includes studios, laboratories, offices, a cinema, a library and meeting places.
