A team of world-class designers, curators and architects have come together to bring the finest European masters and their workmanship on center stage specifically for Homo Faber to provide visitors with an opportunity to experience craftsmanship in a new, unique and memorable way.

The exhibition is an immersive experience. 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.

Covering nearly 4,000 square meters, 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.
