To train students in the various disciplines so they acquire the artistic knowledge necessary to create their own works using artisan techniques.
All within a historic common space that encourages the exchange of ideas and collective projects between the different arts, emphasizing the know-how and creativity of individuals.
Each student is closely supervised by his or her tutor, from the very start until the completion of their project and the final realization of the work. Under the tutor’s guidance, students are encouraged to explore their highest levels of creativity in a contemporary context in Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance.
Laboratorio Firenze is a space for research and experimentation.
The aim and purpose of this intercultural space is the free dialogue between artists and their works.
A journey through the history of applied arts and fashion.
The multiplicity of disciplines are united by the same spirit, namely that of transmitting and communicating.
Without barriers and preconceptions to give shape to a choreography, like an epic poem in a prologue.
VIVA ARTE VIVA.
Don’t forget to use your digits! Your hands are the original digital devices.
Laboratorio Firenze is a space created by artists for artists, on the forms of expression they suggest, the doubts they raise, the means of expression they choose.
Our objective is to create a place in which to promote deeper understanding, discussion and reflection.
If you have two or three real passions, don’t feel like you have to pick and choose between them. Don’t discard. Keep all your passions in your life.
Steven Tomlinson in the book “Steal Like an Artist” by Austin Kleon
At Laboratorio Firenze, we believe that the work must involve the majority of the senses. Feeling the project in your hands makes something magical occur. It will feel like play, not work.
You need to find a way to bring your body into your work.
Our nerves aren’t a one-way street – our bodies can tell our brains as much as our brains tell our bodies.
We need to move, to feel like we are making something with our bodies, not just our heads. Work that only comes from the head isn’t any good.
At Laboratorio Firenze, we want to instil a positive and progressive energy in young artists inspired by those whose work has been lost or forgotten.
Get on board and
Become an artisan in the heart of Florence!
Laboratorio Firenze is envisaged as a space for research and experimentation.
