Manifattura tabacchi [home edition]
Manifattura Tabacchi’s digital platform.
In accordance with measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Dpcm 9/03/2020), all exhibits, concerts, and workshops at Manifattura Tabacchi have been cancelled. B9 is closed to the public and all events have been postponed until further notice.
However, Manifattura Tabacchi will not cease to be a source of cultural inspiration. We proudly present our digital platform [Home Edition] serving as a new space for creative inspiration — a place in which to connect and exchange content pertinent to art, design, and culture.
Manifattura Tabacchi [Home Edition] is the platform that, as of Monday, 16 March, takes on the challenge of overcoming physical distance by offering many different events and special features via social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Spotify). While we wait until we will again be able to physically visit and inhabit our cultural hub, this material will help satisfy our creative cravings and reconnect to our cultural community.

Plants are an unlimited source of inspiration. During this time of collective pause, Pnat — the interdisciplinary think tank with a ‘branch’ in B9 in which botany meets design by fostering a collaboration between botanists, engineers, and architects — offers food for thought, which can help us learn to view plants and the planet in a new light. How do we go about solving complex problems? How can we learn to envision the future? What can plants teach us?
