Homo Faber 2022
Crafting a more human future
Homo Faber Event is a major cultural exhibition dedicated to fine craftsmanship. Organised by the Michelangelo Foundation, the international event celebrates master craftsmanship, seeking to increase recognition and visibility for master artisans. A showcase of craftsmanship excellence, the exhibition shines a light on a rich diversity of materials and crafts, from paper making to wood working, from the rarest artisanal techniques to some of the most iconic examples of contemporary craftsmanship, and explores their links to the world of creativity and design. Imagined by a handpicked team of world-renowned designers, curators and architects, the exhibition stretches over a number of magnificent spaces throughout the Fondazione Giorgio Cini located on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in the heart of Venice. The inaugural edition in 2018 welcomed 62,500 visitors.
The Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship believes in a future which values master craftsmanship and places the human hand at the centre of production. Its mission is to celebrate and preserve craftsmanship and strengthen its connection to the world of design. At the heart of all the foundation’s activities are the artisans who dedicate themselves to the pursuit of excellence using long-held traditions, skills and knowledge. In addition to the Homo Faber Event, contemporary craftspeople are the protagonists of the foundation’s signature digital platform, Homo Faber Guide. From its headquarters in Geneva, the non-profit institution works with an international network of organizations to promote a new cultural movement.
