Fabrica, the Research and Development Communication Centre
for the Benetton Group is housed in a stunning building by Japanese
architect Tadao Ando and is situated outside Treviso in North Italy.
Led by an international team, Fabrica supports the creative
development of young artist/researchers from all over the world.
Fabrica invites young artists to participate in a range of
communication activities, in cinema or graphics, design or music,
as part of Colors Magazine, or within new media or photography.
In its role as a laboratory of applied creativity (its name comes
from the Latin word meaning "workshop"), Fabrica deals with
new forms of communication, following two key principles:
a hands-on approach to training (the young grant holders are
invited to "learn by practice"), and a multi-disciplinary approach.
See www.fabrica.it for further details.
