Bassano del Grappa in north eastern Italy is a land strongly characterized by manufacturing culture and very dense of small and medium industries. We aim at taking this fertile ground to the next level by introducing digital manufacturing. Our lab is primarily focused on education, with a strong commitment to convey an inclusive model of knowledge, removing any boundary like age, sex, physical inabilities and other prejudices in technology. The core team first established the Fab Lab Bassano in August 2013 and received mention in Wired magazine, Italian edition February 2014, as one of the first running fab lab in north eastern Italy (The Urban Reef). Since then the team continues to grow and thanks to the support of Adelante ONLUS it finally got founded by the Veneto region becoming the Cre-ta fab lab. Our improved building and brand new machinery make the perfect place for collaboration with schools and institutions of the area. We also arrange workshops, meetings and conferences with citizens and private companies. The long list of our partners is our guarantee of strong involvement with the territory.
