Venice, the magnificen place where 4 centuries ago the fassamano was first invented, gets ready for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition that will take place from May 26th to November 25th 2018 in the Giardini and the Arsenale, and around other venues in Venice.
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara titled the 16th International Architecture Exhibition Freespace, and explained their choice with the following words:
«Freespace describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture's agenda, focusing on the quality of space itself....Freespace encourages reviewing ways of thinking, new ways of seeing the world, of inventing solutions ".
At Fassamano that is exactly what we did: reinvented and redesigned an object from the past to make it useful to our today's reading needs through the day. From us at Fassamano, a wish to you all to be able to enjoy this year's Biennale.
And while strolling in Venice you may capture , in hidden Churches and Palazzos, some beautiful paintings and frescos of ancient fassamanos.Like at the School of S. Giorgio degli Schiavoni.
