Du 14 au 16 octobre aura lieu la 4e édition de la Maker Faire de Rome.
Dal 14 al 16 ottobre si terra la Maker Faire di Roma.
From October 14th to 16th will be held the Roma Maker Faire.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people of all ages and backgrounds gather together to show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Maker Faire celebrated 150 Faires in 2015 alone and has reached over 1,5 million attendees globally since it launched in San Mateo, California in 2006, less than a year after the publication of the first Make: Magazine. The tenth annual Maker Faire Bay Area welcomed some 1200 maker entries and 145,000 attendees.
World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ maker entries and 90,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Rome, Paris, Hannover, Berlin, Trondheim, Oslo, Newcastle (UK), Tokyo Singapore, Taipei, and Shenzhen host our larger-scale “featured” Maker Faires, and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires inspire and ignite creative communities everywhere around the globe.
MAKER FAIRE ROME – The European Edition
Maker Faire Rome is the European edition of Maker Faire. It’s organised by Asset Camera, a Special Agency of the Rome’s Chamber of Commerce, whose mission is to place the city of Rome at the center of the debate on innovation, by spreading the digital culture, and developing the individual and collective entrepreneurship that is so integral to the Maker movement’s genetic makeup.
Maker Faire Rome combines science, science fiction, technology, entertainment and business to create something totally new. It’s an event created to cater to curious participants of all ages, wishing to experience firsthand the makers’ inventions. Inventions that are the result of a desire to solve everyday problems, whether big or small.
Maker Faire Rome is an event designed to turn the spotlight on hundreds of projects from around the world that are able to catapult visitors into the future.
Not just a fair for field experts. At Maker Faire, you’ll find inventions in the field of science and technology (from 3D printers to wearables, through to drones, robots and digital manufacturing), but also new forms of art, entertainment, crafts, food experiments and attractions never seen before.
The watchwords of the Maker Faire Rome are: meeting, exchange, training, entertainment and interaction.
The public can experience and try their hand with these new inventions where innovation is made available to everyone. An experience where participants are an integral part of the fair itself.
An event for families, where children and adults can get involved in hundreds of fun and educational activities and demonstrations. A place where you can learn how to build your own smartphone, your own toys, “3D print” shoes, jewellery, handbags and even edible ravioli, or discover how to make your house home-automated with just a few simple measures.
With over 600 inventions on display in 2015 and more than 100 thousand visitors, Maker Faire Rome is the world’s largest exhibition after the “Area Bay” and “New York” in the US.
This year, after the success of the 2013 , 2014 and 2015 editions, we expect hundreds of inventions and attractions from 65 nations. On the programme: live performances, panels, workshops, seminars, conferences and many surprises in store especially for children who will have a special Kids Area, which is even bigger with even more activities than previous editions.
The Maker Faire 2016 runs 14 to 16 October 2016 at Fiera di Roma.
