Fablab Torino pursues one main objective: bring digital fabrication and the Open Source culture in a physical space where machines, ideas, and people can merge and contaminate each other, while learning from one another. Fablab’s experience has became possible thanks to Officine Arduino, R&D department and Italian hub of Arduino. These organizations have supported and empowered our space since its early beginning, as Fablab Torino is the first Italian Fablab.

More than three years have passed since Fablab Torino started in 2011. Nowadays the boundaries of digital fabrication practices go beyond 3D printing and digital processes. They reach new levels of experimentation. Biohacking experiments and kitchen tools are just few of the many outputs achievable in a Fablab; in these environments ideas find a fertile soil for growth. The early excitement for a new technology left room for improvement on social and cultural aspects, and it is in this context that the Fablab Torino experimentation finds possibilities for making in new meaningful scenarios. In 2016 we decided to present Fablab Torino under a different skin, and to show how many results and different purposes are achievable in a digital fabrication laboratory. We shifted the attention from the mere technology to the possible results.
