Ephemeral contemporary artwork in the interior courtyards of private mansions

Let us surprise you!


The FAV is also a poetic walk for everybody

The artworks, carried out specifically in harmony with the court in which they are exposed, are unique and last only during the festival.

Each year a different theme, for our greatest pleasure always renewed!

Some themes of the previous editions: the tenth, sensuality, souvenir, surprise, meeting, light and shadow...
