Collaborating with the Michelangelo Foundation on the Homo Faber exhibition are four partner organizations which share its vision and convictions, including: the Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte, the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller, the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, and the Triennale Design Museum.
Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte
The Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte is a private, non-profit institution founded in 1995. Based in Milan, it promotes cultural, scientific and educational initiatives for the protection and diffusion of artistic crafts. The Fondazione Cologni’s mission is to inspire a “new Renaissance” of the artistic crafts and rescue them from the threat of extinction. Many of its initiatives focus on young people and training future generations of artisans.
Fondation Bettencourt Schueller
The Fondation Bettencourt Schueller is an independent entity established to make a lasting contribution to the common good in France and to boost French influence on the international stage. It supports the arts, life sciences, and inclusive society, with a particular belief in people and their unbounded potential. Since 1999, it has supported fine craftsmanship with a series of prizes, most notably the Liliane Bettencourt Prize pour l’intelligence de la main.
Fondazione Giorgo Cini
The Fondazione Giorgo Cini is a non-profit cultural institution based in Venice, Italy. Established by Vittorio Cini in 1951 with the aim of creating an international cultural centre re-integrating the San Giorgio Maggiore Island into the life of Venice and the region, today it is an important centre of humanistic studies and encourages the creation and development of educational, social, cultural and artistic institutions in the surrounding territory.
Triennale Design Museum
The Triennale Design Museum is the leading museum of Italian design, founded in 2007 by the Triennale di Milano, the historic institution dedicated to architecture, design, art, fashion, photography, new media and performing arts. Dynamic and constantly innovating, the Triennale Design Museum offers a diverse range of points of view and perspectives and is particularly interested in being both scholarly and rigorous as well as engaging and addictive.
