MakersItaly (http://www.makersitaly.it/) is the most important italian fair dedicated to the makers and DIY world. Don't missi it!
News from Hardware makers blog (http://www.hwmakers.eu/)
I hope we see other nations around the world encourage Making.
It is a great motivator to spur people to new innovation.
If you go Lupo, can you post some updates for those of us who cannot travel? It would be interesting to see the Italian view of Making.
