      The Factory’s transformation has begun: construction is underway and the grounds echo with the sound of voices and people at work on the conservative restoration of 6 buildings for a total of over 37,000 m², the heart of an ambitious regeneration project that represents a new centre for the city of Florence.

       

      A meeting place that’s open to everyone, an innovative and sustainable contemporary hub for living, working, and getting inspired.

      The legacy of the past for a sustainable future

      Explore the 1st floor of building 4

      The regeneration project preserves the legacy and original characteristics of the buildings intact, infusing this tradition with a new energy that will open its doors to Florence’s most innovative and creative soul: a community of artists and makers of today and tomorrow, renewing the traditional art of refined craftsmanship by combining it with contemporary design.

       

      A new centre, in constant dialogue with the city’s extraordinary historic and artistic heritage.

      Case History

      Polimoda (B6)

      Learning and workshops

      Where we are

      The Factory is located inside Manifattura Tabacchi, just steps away from the historical centre of Florence

      Treamline #2 provides quick connections to the airport and the central Santa Maria Novella train station. A new bike-and-pedestrian route crosses through Manifattura Tabacchi from north to south, connecting the university neighbourhood of Novoli with the Park of the Cascine at the shop of the new T4 tramline, which will soon speed up connections to Florence’s Fashion District. By crossing through the Cascine, Florence’s largest public park, in just a few minutes you can reach the heart of the historical centre both by bike and on foot.
