The Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, an institution based in Switzerland dedicated to the promotion of master craftsmanship on an international scale, is holding its first major cultural event dedicated to art crafts in Europe: Homo Faber. Crafting a More Human Future.

The exhibition has been conceived by a highly select team of renowned designers, curators and architects. It aims to showcase the excellence of European craftsmanship, offering visitors a memorable
unique experience. Homo Faber has relied on the collaboration of an exceptional team to infuse the
show with extraordinary creativity and energy, including leading figures in the design field, such as Michele De Lucchi, Stefano Boeri, India Mahdavi, Judith Clark, Jean Blanchaert and Stefano Micelli. The partners of the Michelangelo Foundation who have collaborated in the organisation all share the same vision: the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller, the Triennale Design Museum and the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte. The exhibition will feature a wide selection of materials and disciplines, from jewellery to custom bicycles, from near extinct artisan skills to some of the most representative examples of European art crafts. Covering an area of 4,000 square metres, Homo Faber will be the largest ever exhibition to be held at the Fondazione Cini; visitors are required to register in advance on
the website www.homofaberevent.com.
