Color and creativity – workshop with Franco Fontana, photographer
18-19-20 April 2018
Fabrica is located in the prestigious Villa Pastega, a 17th century villa restored and greatly enlarged by the famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
The ancient architecture has been redesigned to keep the story that it embodies alive, while the most recent building develops underground, so as to highlight the beauty of the landscape.
The centre covers an area of 51,000 square meters and includes laboratories, classrooms, offices, cinema, library, meeting places.
The acquisitions of the library mainly focus on communication and art and try to satisfy the needs of our users, with the aim of ensuring a coherent and harmonious development of the collection.
Every item is catalogued by title, author and subject and can be consulted online.
Treviso is a medieval city in the Veneto countryside, about 30 kilometers (less than 20 miles) from Venice. It is a jewel of a city with its ancient buildings, narrow streets, and canals. Dante mentions Treviso in the Divine Comedy. The old town center is small and accessible, a place to breathe in the “dolce vita” atmosphere while sitting at cafés crowding the lively, bustling squares.
