On 30 September, the great international event of European excellence craftsmanship “Homo Faber: Crafting a more human future”, created and supported by the Fondazione Cologni, Milan's Triennale Design Museum, the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller, and Venice's Fondazione Giorgio Cini, came to an end.

It was a successful edition, as confirmed by figures: 62,500 visitors over 17 days, 13 curators for 16 exhibition areas, nearly 900 authorial works of art by 410 masters and designers from 35 nations, showcasing the excellence of European craftsmanship, and 91 Masters of Art proving their dexterity live.

Continuing its mission, the Michelangelo Foundation is weaving an extensive network between institutions, public and private organisations, schools as well as applied art and design museums sharing the same ideals. Over 70 organisations from 26 European nations have been given the opportunity to meet and exchange views at Homo Faber 2018.

After the great critical and public recognition won by its first edition, Homo Faber will be back in Venice in 2020, continuing to discover, promote and enhance artistic crafts worldwide through a biennial event.
