The building, dating back to the first half of 20th Century, owned by the Di Lorenzo Family, originally hosted a big distillery, operating for many years and whose traces are still visible on the tower coming out from the shelters. The complex, expanded several times during the years, now hosts the warehouses and deposits of a touristic activity. The structure is overlooking Via Fiorentina, an arterial road linking Siena’s historical centre with Florence and the countryside. That’s why Via Fiorentina is a main passage for touristic flows arriving in the city.
The building has been re-qualified for hosting a strategic exhibition site of the Festival, by working on the small square, formed by the different structures of the complex, which became a welcoming and relational space, designed for the new expositive

Description: "Sky's The Limit", is an exhibition of a collection of large-scale aerial photographs by the award-winning photographers of “Drone Awards”, which will be showcased in the beautiful rooms at the “Duccio di Buoninsegna” Institute, from October 26 through December 2, 2018.
The exhibition captures the world's beauty as seen from the skies. Mountain valleys carved by glaciers, saw-toothed coastlines edged by glistening waters, abandoned villages and sprawling transport networks – all the aerial images tell their story.
It will be a showcase of aerial photography from around the world and will explore how artists stretch the boundaries of traditional photography to reflect the environmental perceptions of our time.
The photographs border on the edge of abstract, subverting spatial relationships and scale, to create a simultaneously alluring and disorienting experience for the viewer.
Comprising the artists' best works, the exhibition will examine the use of form, color, perspective, and abstraction to reshape our understanding of landscapes, nature, environment, wildlife and the entire world.
The exhibited works revive historic photographic processes, as well as, use innovative techniques and unconventional equipment to depict the world in surprising ways. The exhibition challenges us to see photography differently, and contemplate our complex relationship with nature and environment.
