The real novelty at this FuoriSalone is the invasion of the world of makers: a wave of innovation, sharing and creativity has invaded Milan.
We have already told you which appointments with makers will be opportunities for interaction with the Maker Faire Rome and on the Call for Makers (LINK) which closes in a few months time, but there are lots of other meetings and workshops which you are invited to participate in.
And to help you negotiate your way through the Milanese jungle, here’s a calendar of events for the coming days:
This year the entire Brera district is dedicated to artisan and industrial design know-how.
You should visit the Appartamento Lago with the two initiatives Play The Change and Play The Materia, together with many friends who we know well: MakeTank, Miocugino, Vectorealism, Troy of PlugandWear, Tecnificio, Kentstrapper
