Manifattura Tabacchi


The new Manifattura Tabacchi is revitalising the old tobacco factory, active for over seventy years before its closure in 2001. The ambitious regeneration project aims to bring a new district of the city to life, giving it the creative energy of fashion, art and design, complementing the historic city centre, open to all and connected to the wider world: a new contemporary destination in Florence. The Masterplan provides for a functional mix where the original and newly constructed buildings will host schools, ateliers and laboratories, office and co-working spaces, studio apartments, housing, a hotel, halls of residence, and a brewery: the gates that once isolated the factory will be reopened and walls will be removed to open the complex up to the city and the wider world, 24/7.
