FABLAB Catania

THE FABLAB CATANIA IS PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF MIT

 
"I always wondered what are we doing here. I mean in this world. What purpose we serve, what is the time given us for? I wondered what I was equal to others and what I was different. Thanks to my work as a designer I have closely studied what drives people. Eat, drink, live in a house, are common needs all human beings have, but those are just some of those needs."

Why are we happy to own the same things?

Do we know what we want?

​VISION

I always wondered what are we doing here. I mean in this world. What purpose we serve, what is the time given us for? I wondered what I was equal to others and what I was different. Thanks to my work as a designer I have closely studied what drives people. Eat, drink, live in a house, are common needs all human beings have, but those are just some of those needs.


There are others which represent our need to belong to a group: the car that we use, the jewelry we wear or clothing we buy. Those who to meet these needs for long enough start soon to have new ones: to differentiate themselves from the group they belong to, to stand out. At this point there are two roads: one - the most traveled in the past up to our days, is to look within the group they belong to and own the most expensive items or the most extravagant ones.


The other road - which is catching on - is to look inside ourselves and try and realize what we really like. Discover ourselves and our tastes without any external influences. Over the years I have come to a conclusion, perhaps a trivial one: we are here to evolve. The time we have should be used to understand more about ourselves and increase our awareness.

At FabLab Catania we want to create awareness, provide solutions by giving to everyone their own personal product.


Personal evolution cannot pass through mass homologation. And without the single individuals evolution, the world does not go anywhere. At Fablab we can concretely do so.


My vision of Fablab is of a place where small and medium enterprises can outsource research and development, which are less and less present departments in today enterprises for cost reasons. The community of makers who gravitate around Fablab Catania, would have the opportunity to enter the world of work, highlighting the potential in a real and tangible way (something that a CV will never do). In short, a clear win-win mode, which with little investment could make our companies competitive again. By stir craft technologies and capabilities it is possible to revive the Made in Italy. Today the place of production is a mix of workshop and laboratory and the product is tailored to the need. FabLab will be the innovation gym for the new Italian manufacture.
