Fabrica complex, restored and enlarged by Tadao Ando, together with the Benetton industrial and logistics hub based in Castrette, have been invited to represent the architecture of the “Made in Italy” inside the Italian Pavillion at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice. Curated by Luca Zevi, the exhibition is dedicated to the “four seasons” of architecture.
The story describes the “Made in Italy” system along its bumpy and fertile pathway, in search of a virtuous relationship between architecture, growth and innovation.
Fabrica and Benetton Castrette have both been included in the 4th season entitled “reMade in Italy”. The challenge of the “fourth season” – systemisation of “Made in Italy” companies in the direction of a Green Economy – is fated to meet the challenge of Expo 2015 “Nourish the Planet”. An extraordinary opportunity for reflecting on the relationship between land and environment, city and agricultural production, and the sense of “design” in the north and south of the world.
