Exhibitors 2019

Il parco open source

Il parco open source

The installation will exhibit prototypes of the “Open Source Park”, an initiative that grew in Rome Metropolitan Area in the last year, after the presentation of the first experimentation of this project, happened at 2017 edition of the Maker Faire. Two parks are furnished with experimental structures, that are designed by a team of students and researchers of Roma Tre University in strict collaboration with the fabrication network of local Fab Labs of Roma Makers and with associations and institutions promoting a “bottom up” approach to maintenance of Public Parks. The project combines such approach with the experimentation on an open cycle of design-fabrication-maintenance, based on a design distributed under creative commons license, but also conceived as an open, vague, alive, playful set of collective infrastructures, under constant change.
