The space

The Saponificio is an ex-industrial space located near “Porto di Mare” M3 metro station, 10 minutes from piazza del Duomo. Fascinating monument of industrial archeology, the complex is a former soap factory owned by the Gavazzi family that was awarded the gold medal in 1920 Milano Expo.
In recent years, the area has been transforming into a place of artistic and creative production: it now hosts artists studio, designers, architects and internationally acclaimed Physical Theatre.

The space is an ideal location for different types of events: photo shooting, product presentation, fashion shows, parties and exhibitions. The variety of indoor and outdoor areas ranging from 100 to 1000 sqm and the possibility to divide the venues, makes this venue a flexible and suitable for the most diverse needs.
The site mantains though, an original factory identity that is definitelly attractive to those looking for an “industrial chic” mood.
