FabLab Torino

Active since 2011, FabLab Torino (previously FabLab Italia) is a place for experiments in digital manufacturing and a makerspace. Its aim is to unite digital fabrication and open-source culture in a single physical place where machines, ideas, people and approaches can freely mix. In this sense, FabLab Torino also functions as a hub for the development of single and group projects. FabLab Torino is hosted by Toolbox Coworking and supported by Officine Arduino, Italian headquarters of Arduino, whose product – a programmable microcontroller – is entirely open source. An international community has formed around Arduino that exchanges projects of all kinds from interactive games to robots.
