Maker Faire Rome’s second day was just as full of energy and wizardry as the first day. A woman visiting from Barcelona said to me that just walking inside gave her goosebumps. The makers, the guests, the organizers all came together to create a fully charged event that left people wanting more.

More than 30,000 people came to Maker Faire Rome over the four days of the festival at the Palazzo di Congressi. Most came on the two days on the weekend. Even the Mayor of Rome stopped by Saturday afternoon to congratulate the organizers and see firsthand the makers and their exhibits.
