To get closer to the world of DIY, keep your eye out for upcoming events in Milan and Parma. There is also a series of workshops on the agenda that will lead to the discovery that you are already a maker and have been for a long long time. This week, our attention is focused on Italy, but there is also an interesting event taking place in London for creators and developers in search of inspiration.
The Makers will meet at We Make Open-Design in Milan during the whole week. The program includes talks, meetings, workshops and events you can’t afford to miss. On Sunday 14th, do not miss the MakerFaireRome Brunch with Massimo Banzi, Alessandro Masserdotti and Giorgio Olivero. The place you are looking for is at number 35, Via Vigevano.
