Merry Fabrica

Merry Fabrica

Saturday 18 December Fabrica reopens its doors for Merry Fabrica, a day of shopping, workshops, entertainment for children, exhibitions, music, street food and lots of creativity.

The event, organized in full compliance with the current protocol on COVID-19, is an unmissable opportunity to look for original gift ideas or simply spend some time immersed in the beautiful architecture of Tadao Ando.

Numerous makers have joined the initiative – all with particular attention to the responsible use of materials – with a very wide range of products: clothing, bijoux, fashion accessories, floral art, items for children, kennels for animals, contemporary souvenirs, design objects, furniture, prints, illustrations, books and seeds for urban agriculture.

“I recycle a story”, animated show with the Trabiccolo dei Sogni
Free upon reservation

Let’s look inside these old and dusty suitcases! A boot? But whose was it? And this red cape? What about this sparkling blue dress? These objects will be the protagonists of a new story that children will invent and that an illustrator will draw.

Il Trabiccolo dei Sogni is made up of hardened players, daydreamers, gourmets of stories, skilled hands and attentive ears. It has been working alongside children for years, offering them experiences to tell each other, to express themselves and to play, making everyone feel unique, important and special.

Open to children aged 4 to 11 accompanied by only one parent.

Duration: about 1 hour
Limited places, reservations at by December 15th.

“Io canto il Corpo Elettrico”, illustration workshop with Lucio Schiavon
Free upon reservation

Can the soul be given shape? Large sheets of transparent paper placed on large windows become the canvas for drawing one’s body and the essence it contains.
The sign will tell us who we are.

Participants are asked, at the time of registration, for a short presentation where they tell who they are, what they do and what prompted them to enroll in the workshop. In case of requests exceeding the availability of places, this presentation will be used for the selection of participants. All the necessary material will be made available by the organization.

Lucio Schiavon is an illustrator and graphic designer born in Venice. He has collaborated with Fabrica, La Biennale di Venezia, Armando Testa Agency. He illustrates books for the Nuages publishing house in Milan and has exhibited at the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation. He won the International Motion Art Award in New York and the Interfilm Festival in Berlin with two animated shorts.

Duration: about 2 hours
Limited places, reservations at by December 13th.

“Tornado”, live concert by Charlie Risso and her band.
Free admission upon availability

Written by Charlie Risso, refined composer who musically places herself between Lana Del Rey, Nick Drake and Mazzy Star, “Tornado” is a journey between dream and matter suspended in a limbo made of lights and dark brushstrokes. Indie / dreampop / rock is the fully successful setting for a work that has had great success for its soft intriguing atmospheres.
Defined by Rolling Stone as “visionary and surreal cinematic poetry”.

What If? is an exhibition on the infinite possibilities of the future, created by the young creatives of Fabrica. Everything we know is going to change. From the way we eat, to the way we breathe. From the way we are born, to the way we mourn. We started using technology to change our environment. In return, technology has shaped us in every way possible, and it continues doing so. So What if we made an exhibition about the future so we can better understand the present?

Imago Mundi Collection is an encyclopedic catalog of the world’s contemporary artistic production born from an idea of Luciano Benetton in 2006. It presents the works in 10×12 cm format of over 26 thousand artists – established and promising young people – from more than 160 countries and native communities from all continents. Objective: dialogue, research, knowledge of the different cultures of our world.
