From 8 to 19 June 2015 the Spinola Banna Foundation for Art will host the workshop of the prominent Italian artist Lara Favaretto.

Nine artists under 35 will take part in the workshop selected through the Foundation’s customary annual competition: Daniella Isamit Morales; Elisa Barrera; Lorenzo Casali; Sara Benaglia; the TCC duo composed of Simone Santilli & Niccolò Benetton; Pier Paolo Luvoni; Valentina Furian (IUAV) and Davide Sgambaro (IUAV)

The artist, as a master of her profession, will share her artistic experience with eight young Italian artists or artists resident in Italy, all under 35, selected through the second call for entries in the annual competition published on the Foundation’s website.
The workshop will be intensive: the guests will live and work together on the Banna estate, in a restructured multi-functional area that has bedrooms, workshops and spacious areas immersed in nature.
