Homo Faber in the City – Wellmade’s master craftsmen open their doors

10/04/2022 - 01/05/2022

Venice is a city built on craftsmanship, and its charm also lies in the workshops and small businesses of savoir faire hidden in the city's alleys. With this edition of the Homo Faber Event, visitors can experience the lagoon city in a different way with Homo Faber in the City, an immersion into all of Venice in addition to the main exhibition on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore. Using Wellmade's website and app, you can take a self-guided custom tour based on your personal interests; experience daily life in a workshop, watch artisans demonstrate their skills, try out the crafts of yesteryear, visit an exhibition, and purchase custom-made gifts right before your eyes. Many artisans present on Wellmade, the platform of the beautiful and well-made of Fondazione Cologni, open the doors of their ateliers for the most curious visitors who wish to dive into a world made of dreams, passion and craftsmanship.
