A unique form of cohabitation under the stars
SuperCondominio, hosted by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’arte Contemporanea with Combo, provides a framework for dialogue and actions in which 40 emergent art spaces from all over Italy are invited to spend a weekend together exchanging ideas, working out positions and negotiating future paths. In the same spirit Combo offers guests a unique form of temporary cohabitation in tents conceived specifically for the occasion and set up under the stars in the gardens of the museum.

A unique sensorial experience
Combo integrates the kitchen – a social and cultural space of production – into its vision with an experimental food lab housed in an ex convent in Venice. With conviviality and sustainability in mind, Food Lab is a place for living, socialising and sharing common values while tasting diverse local recipes.
A collective voice that reflects and transmits the vibrations of the entire universe of Combo is launched. Events, concerts, lectures and playlists are incorporated into a 24 hour Radio that aims to attract and engage both Combo’s guests and listeners all around the world.

A community of like-minded people
Located in an ex convent just steps away from the lively Fondamenta Misericordia, Combo Venezia is one of the city’s new cultural spots. In keeping with the architecture and art biennales and Mostra del Cinema – that animate the city and attract culturally minded travellers to Venice every year – Combo Venezia facilitates and nurtures artistic activity. It is the place where locals and travellers mingle with each other.

An oasis in the city
A typical milanese “casa di ringhiera” overlooking green parklands and just steps away from the buzzing Navigli district is converted and adapted to the needs of travellers, neighbourhood residents and artists alike. On the ground floor guests can enjoy a meal, aperitif or late night drink with friends, and move freely between the public spaces, art gallery and radio, all of which surround a characteristic open-air courtyard.
A contemporary urban hotspot
New life is breathed into a historic fire station in the heart of the vibrant and edgy Porta Palazzo district. The huge nineteenth-century building which faces Porta Palazzo market – Turin’s cultural melting pot – is transformed into a contemporary urban hotspot with rooms for guests, a bar, radio and residencies for artists and musicians. Combo Torino is a place to chill out, meet new people and exchange ideas in a context characterised by open laboratory-style experimentation.
THIS IS COMBO
Combo is dynamic, fluid and open. At once a radical new form of hospitality and an incubator for the arts and culture, it has multiple facades and permutations. Historic buildings in some of Italy’s most well known cities are revitalised and transformed into vibrant meeting spots for locals, travellers and artists alike.
Hosting guest rooms, a bar, restaurant, Radio and art residency program, Combo fosters conviviality and exchange while nurturing the practices of artists and musicians. It brings like minded people together in a place where they can live, feel, learn and create, and above all, where unexpected things can happen.
