As far as Andy Warhol thinks , the factory is a place where artists produce freely and the ideas come true.
ENAIP factory wishes to be a place available not only for young people coming from all over the world but also for local companies; a place where innovative and original activities come true supporting a competitive development focused on the cultural and productive growth of young people. Enaip Factory is a meeting point, an attractive research location, a multifunctional place where experiments and comparisons are possible thanks to the fully-equipped facilities.
ENAIP factory wishes to be a place where reality and the requirements and need of the area can meet, the place where the communication and dialogue among companies, students and designers is encouraged.
The area is divided into three different parts:
