#MakerFaire #Rome – October 3rd – 6th 2013 Prepare for your kids and class to attend

The first “official” european edition of the Maker Faire is coming to Rome. At Campo Boario, in the popular and lively neighborhood of Testaccio

4 daysi
200 selected european makers
1 opening conference
10 workshops
25 live talk
10 live performances

Stay tuned for the complete program

Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.

A Maker is an enthusiast of DIY/DIT(do it together) with a great attitude for sharing knowledge and information.

Makers build up stuff they need or just because it’s fun and prefer to create instead of just consume.

Makers use a variety of tools and techniques, analog and digital, both traditional or cutting edge; and the web is the most important ones!
