Fondazione Cologni is a donor of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale

Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d'Arte is a donor of the 18th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale. The International Exhibition, which can be visited until 26 November 2023, accompanies visitors and enthusiasts through the exhibition spaces of the Arsenale and Giardini and towards the other projects set up in the various places in the city of Venice and Forte Marghera, in Mestre. "The Laboratory of the Future" - this is the theme of this year's edition - is conceived as "a sort of artisan workshop, a laboratory in which architects and professionals from a wide range of creative disciplines trace a path made up of examples drawn from their activities that the public will be able to walk through imagining for themselves what the future may hold," says curator Lesley Lokko. At the heart of every project is the main and decisive tool: imagination. “It is impossible to build a better world without first imagining it”. La Biennale di Venezia is concretely engaged in the crucial objective of combating climate change, promoting a more sustainable model for the planning, setting up and carrying out of all its activities: "What does it mean to be an agent of change?" , this is the question from which the current edition started. To find out, we are waiting for you in Venice! More info on (ph. Marzo Zorzanello)
