This year we want Maker Faire Rome not to be only a point of arrival for those who will exhibit their projects, but a real kick off.
The 2017 edition of Maker Faire Rome is enriched by contests and special initiatives aimed to give an extra boost to you – dear fellow maker – to give your best in terms of creativity, quality and resourcefulness!
A public and tangible recognition of the value of the projects exhibited during the event, according to the different target.
Here the contest available at the moment
