Since 2014 the Foundation has organized open days devoted to enthusiasts, the curious and all those who wish to know the world of Renzo Piano and RPBW and they way they create architecture. The great demand has led the Foundation to turn these occasions into regular events held on each month.

Guests have the opportunity to get to know the activities of the Foundation and visit the Living Archive, which presents drawings, models and images to illustrate the projects by Renzo Piano and his collaborators. A journey spanning more than 50 years: from the experimental structures of the 1960s to the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, continuing through the 1980s and 1990s with the Museum of the Menil Collection in Texas, Kansai Airport, Japan, and the Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Center in New Caledonia, all the way to the most recent works such as the Shard in London. Three one-hour tours are scheduled.  

The tour is in Italian, free of charge and with reservations are essential. Reservations for single and small groups can be made from this site. You can book tours for organized groups up to a maximum of 30 people, also in English, by calling 010 691378 or sending an email to
