Fondazione Giorgio Cini - Homo Faber - Next of Europe


 Homo Faber

Next of Europe

Curators – Jean Blanchaert – Stefano Boeri


Discover the richness of Europe’s crafts heritage through this celebration of contemporary master artisans who are not only creating objects of exception but also passing on their precious skills to talented young craftspeople.  From Poland to France to Italy to Wales - these European living treasures, represented by their unique artworks, hail from every corner and use techniques passed down from generation to generation which are inextricably linked to the region they live in. Displayed as though in a contemporary cabinet of curiosities, they reveal the breadth and depth of talent and skill among craftspeople working in Europe today.
