Fabbrica del Vapore is a space of the Municipality of Milan aimed at carrying out interventions for the promotion, enhancement and use of contemporary visual and performative art. Fabbrica del Vapore is so called because until 1935, the space belonged to the Italian company Carminati Toselli which built materials and vehicles for steam railways and tramways, including the conical "1928" tram, so avant-garde that it is still today we can see it circulating in the Milan city network. The immense production stopped in the thirties. From then on, the spaces began to host the most diverse activities, until the Municipality decided to restructure the area and entrust some spaces to cultural and creative laboratories and directly manage the larger ones: Cathedral, Cisterns, Messina and Columns for use them as spaces for exhibitions and other cultural activities. In Fabbirca del Vapore artistic residencies and ateliers are organized for selected artists in relation to specific projects.
