Fabrica is a communication research center. Founded in 1994 by Luciano Benetton and Oliviero Toscani, it is housed outside Treviso, Northern Italy, in a magical architecture restored and expanded by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

With a renaissance-inspired, learning-by-doing approach, Fabrica offers art residencies to creative talents - 25 years old or under - who experiment contemporary communication through a constant cross-pollination between different disciplines, such as photography, video, graphic design, design, music and digital.

Fabrica also organizes workshops, lectures and training experiences where the worlds of art, culture and research meet to develop new ideas. Internationally renowned architects, musicians, historians, designers, artists, interaction designers, art directors and sociologists collaborate with Fabrica.
