La Fabbrica del Vapore


Once an industrial complex housing a factory for electric trams, La Fabbrica Del Vapore (“The Steam Factory”) nowadays is a centre for the arts of all different kinds, like design, music, dance, photography, theatre, cinema and entertainment.

After the renovation works finished in 2008, different workshops started their activities, aiming to establish a centre for young people where they can discover and develop their creative skills and have the freedom to express their artistic ideas.

Throughout the year various events including concerts and exhibitions are organised in the many spaces that are offered by La Fabbrica Del Vapore.
