In Lisbon, the visit to Lx Factory enabled the participants to get be touch with a creative incubator placed in an old factory “Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos Lisbonense”, one of the most important manufacturing complex in Lisbon’s history. An urban fragment, kept hidden for years, is now returned to the city in the form of LXFactory. A creative island occupied by corporations and professionals of the industry serves also as stage for a diverse set of events related to fashion, publicity, communication, fine arts, architecture, music, etc.
