Located on Giudecca Island, SPUMA - Space for the Arts is an evocative space of industrial archeology, in old Dreher brewery right behind Fortuny and Molino Stucky buildings.
For the third edition of the Venice Design Biennial, SPUMA hosted the second part of Design As Self-Portrait. The exhibition investigated the increasingly important role that design plays in what we choose to communicate our identity, in the permanent swing between use and representation, reality and virtuality.
