Scuderia Living Lab innovation

In the Food Alchemist, science and cuisine coexist in symbiosis creating a new ecosystem. Nutraceutic properties from raw materials are enhanced through 3 techniques: fermentation, aroma water, and tisanes; suggesting a circular economy model where the word “waste” is reinvented.

Considering that kitchens were the first-known human example of makerspaces and innovation we believe food makers play a strategic role in the future kitchens.
In this lab you can play with food 3D printers, precision eating sensors, robots, AI and VR systems, and digital fabrication tools explore and ideate game changing solution for the future of food

This space is dedicated to the farmer’s role in the cultivation of aromatic herbs, sprouts, and vegetables, featuring a rotating installation of technologies exploring indoor agricultural innovations and DIY solutions.

By applying the most advanced and sustainable technologies, we aim to feed the trophic network within the Scuderia’s ecosystem.

What We Do

Scuderia is a real playground for food tech startups to confront the market, test and validate their technologies and receive feedback from real users, a showcase to tell the world about themselves.

The innovative aspect that characterizes Scuderia startups focuses on operations, waste reduction, speed of purchasing processes, but above all its intent is to educate and inform those who want to know the origin of raw materials, provide services to users and to make the whole space pleasant and welcoming.
