They are from all over Europe and their sole objective is innovation. They are the Makers – “digital artisans” – and on Friday 28 March they will all come together at Maker Day, a first meeting to share the very essence of the maker revolution: start from an idea, implement it and put it at the service of everyone. During Maker Day, professionals will share the best case studies and tools to use to further extend the limits of feasibility.
The 2nd European Edition of the Rome Maker Faire – promoted by the Chamber of Commerce of Rome, organised by the Chamber’s special company, AssetCamera, and curated by Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino with Riccardo Luna – seems certain to be more successful than last year, which attracted over 250 projects from all over Europe, more than 200 live performances and a crowd of 35,000 visitors.
A coming together of professionals and enthusiasts, who will again be able to share their passion for innovation, participating in hundreds of workshops and testing the most innovative projects in Europe, to experience first-hand the new frontier of innovation expressed by the “Maker” movement.

On 3 March, four makers that participated in the first Rome Maker Faire – The European Edition will have the honour and task to present their projects at the Italian Innovation Day organised by the Mind The Bridge Foudation with the support of the Italian Consulate in San Francisco. The Italian Innovation Day, a prestigious event held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, will be dedicated to the makers’ movement.
The event aims to bring Italian makers together with foreign investors and entrepreneurs, creating a virtuous ecosystem capable of turning innovative ideas into concrete business projects, hopefully successfully.
Throughout the Italian Innovation Day, the Startup Europe Partnership programme will also be presented, supported by the European Union and that promotes exchanges among the best continental start-ups and large corporations.
The curator of the first European Edition of the Maker Faire, Riccardo Luna will be among the speakers at the event.
Off Grid Box, OSVehicle, Make Tank and Makoo Jeweles are the makers that have been invited to attend.
