In 2014 the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) celebrates its first 50 years. To bolster such an important milestone, the Centre's Science Dissemination Unit has organized the first Trieste Mini Maker Faire, in collaboration with Maker Media Inc. and the Immaginario Scientifico Science Centre, held on Saturday 17 May 2014 at ICTP's Miramare Campus. Makers have gathered to showcase the results of their creativity and to share their ideas with the general public. The event provides free entrance for everybody.

Maker Faire is a global movement aiming to inspire, educate and entertain curious and creative minds of all ages. The Trieste Mini Maker Faire has brought together and uncovered makers, inventors, scientists, crafters, artists and all other passionate creative enthusiasts from the Triveneto region of Italy as well as Slovenia, Croatia and beyond. While showing their projects, participants also shared their passion for making and inspired visitors to make things themselves. Special attention has been given to ideas and projects of educational interest and aimed at developing countries.

Trieste Mini Maker Faire is independently organized under license from MakerMedia, Inc.


Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including this right here in Trieste and the next one in Turin.
