Make Magic Happen: Maker Faire 2017 Roundup
More than 100,000 visitors in only three days, with 700 projects presented by Makers all over the world. These are the stats for the “Maker Faire Rome 2017- The European Edition 4.0”, the largest innovation fair in Europe, organized by the Rome Chamber of Commerce under the auspices of their special bureau, Innova Camera. A “future under construction” was the focus of discussions this year, with a particular emphasis on small and medium-sized companies with young makers at the head of these industries. Massimo Banzi, curator of the event and co-founder of Arduino, said that “the inventions of young makers will lead to innovation and job creation”. As we did for the last edition, we recap the future with a report with the events and innovations that featured in this incredible show and tell. Ready? Let’s do it!
