Fabrica, the Benetton Group’s communication research center, was founded in 1994 and is based in Treviso, Italy.
Fabrica is a unique hybrid of education, practice and research. It is a laboratory of applied creativity, a talent incubator, in which young artists and designers from all over the world develop innovative projects and explore new directions in numerous fields, from design to music film to photography, publishing and interaction. In this multicultural and transdisciplinary context the designer-experimenters are guided along their research paths by leading world figures in art, design and communication. A regular workshop program with visiting international experts fosters further exploration.
Communication research at Fabrica addresses individual creative expression, social causes, cultural events and commercial enterprise.
