Rome hosts the European edition of Maker Faire. It is the fourth year that the city celebrates the art and science of making, always on a different site to accommodate the exponentially growing number of visitors. The site of the 2016 edition is the Fiera di Roma, the new fourteen pavilions exhibition ground near the airport Leonardo da Vinci in Fiumicino, which open to the public in 2006.
It has been my first participation to the Rome Maker Faire; it was quite a discovery to learn how welcomed the event is by the city: creativity and innovation are present in almost any stand, celebrated by perhaps over one-hundred-thousand visitors. Middle and high school student en masse came to visit the exhibition on October 14.
