This will mark the 3rd year for Maker Faire Rome, the largest European Maker Faire, and like any other Maker Faire, they want fresh Makers to fill the event. As Massimo Banzi, creator of the Arduino and curator of the Faire, says in the video above, they are interested in not only locals, but entrants from everywhere.
