Società delle Api (The Bee Society) is an independent non-profit organization founded by Silvia Fiorucci Roman that fosters solidarity, knowledge and collaborative practices across different disciplines. SDA’s mission is to generate research-based platforms where artists, architects, designers and thinkers can develop their own projects in close collaboration with each other and to create new modes of exchange between artists, curators, researchers, institutions, collectors and philanthropists. Società delle Api is a non-exclusive space that endorses the idea of a network as a constantly changing swarm of people and ideas.
