logo_fabbro_selectOfficina Faré is a place for Making: doing, living, and growing. These three aspects correspond to the building blocks of the space of which l’Officina is part: workshop, garden, and living area. It is located in Saronno, a small city just outside Milan, Italy.

Built in the 50s, l’Officina was run as an independent business for 60 years by a family of artisans, metalworkers and engineers who worked and lived close to their families.

In the same spirit of independence, shared living, and resourceful thinking, Officina Faré started as a grass-roots initiative aimed at helping with revitalising the economic, social and cultural fibre of the sorrounding communities through space and skills sharing , and  local and International connections.

These are our first steps, let’s make them a  journey.
