Colors / Italy / T4

This makes me die a bit inside. Colors is my favourite magazine subject ever, each is different and they're always changing. Below is a job offer to work in the Colors studio in Italy for a year... the deadline was the 4th of April.

I've send for a notebook.
I'm made a account.

Fabrica, Benetton’s communication research centre, was set up in 1994. The fruit of the Group’s cultural legacy, is based in Treviso, Italy in a complex restored and enlarged by Tadao Ando.

Fabrica is not a school, advertising agency or university. It is an applied creativity laboratory, a talent incubator, a studio of sorts in which young, modern artists come from all over the world to develop innovative projects and explore new directions in myriad avenues of communication, from design, music and film to photography, publishing and the Internet. These artist-experimenters are accompanied along their research path by leading figures in art and communication, blurring the boundaries of culture and language and transgressing the traditional borders between a diverse range of communication mediums.

Communication research at Fabrica services a wide variety of social causes and disciplines such as economics, social or environmental sciences. Fabrica’s aim is to grasp the future by giving innovative exposure to cultural or scientific projects which open a window onto tomorrow’s world.

Dear Fabrica,
