Homo Faber returns to Venice to unveil an unprecedented cultural experience of craftsmanship with 15 immersive exhibitions. For its second edition, the event looks to highlight the excellence of master craftsmanship internationally. With a special focus on craftspeople from Japan, it spotlights the country’s venerated craftsmanship traditions and time-honoured skills and showcases its influence on European creativity and craftsmanship. Together, the exhibition spaces showcase a diverse array of materials and expertise, from traditional skills in danger of being lost to the most cutting-edge contemporary techniques.

Beyond the walls of Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the Homo Faber in Città project allows visitors to experience secret Venice, exploring the craftsmanship hidden between the city’s canals through exclusive visits to Venetian artisans’ workshops and ateliers, museums, shops and more. Using the app or website, visitors will be able to create bespoke self-guided craft tours and experience the city in a completely new way.

Artists involved are art international master artisans and rising stars who illustrate the diversity of materials, techniques, origins and skills behind functional everyday objects and outstanding decorative pieces. The exhibition is organised by Michelangelo Foundation – an international non-profit organization based in Geneva, Switzerland – and supported by Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Fondation Bettencourt Schueller and The Japan Foundation. The general curator of Homo Faber Event is Alberto Cavalli, Executive Director of the Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship; however, this edition involves an overall 22 curators and designers.
