Maker Faire Rome - The European Edition 2019 takes Rome, Italy on October 18-20, 2019 and promises a robust lineup with a mix of do-it-yourself (DIY) tech electronics as well as art. The forthcoming maker faire is poised to unite Italian artists and tech companies for revolutionary collaborations. Now, the call for makers has been extended until July 8, 2019. New at Maker Faire Rome '19, there's an innovative union between artists and makers.
Maker Faire Rome 2019 Unites Artists and MakersOften, maker faire events feature a focus largely on either tech and DIY electronics, or arts and crafts. However, Maker Faire Rome 2019 - The European Edition bridges the gap between artists and makers with its Maker Art exhibit. This session probes the dynamic of groundbreaking tech and modern art. The goal is to create a few large installations featuring everything from pop art to video content, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI).
Artists including Bill Vorn, Canadian robotic artist, Naples video artist Mattia Casalegno, and UK-based Patrick Tresset, a portraitist who uses tiny robotic arms for portraiture, will be in attendance. Maker Faire Rome is poised to offer more than a mere installation or exhibit, and instead a full-on experience.
As Lorenzo Tagliavanti, President of the Rome Chamber of Commerce reveals, "Maker Faire Rome is a consolidated platform, it is the place where Science meets innovation, from the ground up, by also offering training, networking and business and is, therefore, an accelerator of the innovation process for the whole of Europe. Because of the event is also evolving thanks to co-creation effort, we are carrying out new projects."
