THE HEADQUARTER OF THE
RENZO PIANO FOUNDATION
IS VILLA NAVE, IS LOCATED
IN GENOVA VESIMA
AND IT WAS INAUGURATED
IN JUNE 2008

The Foundation is based in Villa Nave, overlooking the sea at Vesima and a few meters away from the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Genoa. The spaces of Villa Nave host the Living Archive, a selection of drawings, sketches and models that give an overview of the projects and buildings constructed over more than fifty years, from the experimental structures of the sixties to the most recent works.
-
The Classroom, where the ongoing projects of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop are exhibited, is devoted to conferences, meetings, lectures and workshops. The garden that borders Villa Nave is using for making mock-ups, parts on a 1:1 scale of many buildings, some of which are kept in these spaces. Since 2009, Villa Nave has been opened to the public on several occasions and visits can be booked through this website in the Welcome section.
