It is a civic initiative underpinned by an explicit collective desire to serve as a pilot and future exemplar for the re-generation of economies on the ‘edge’ of large urban centres such as Milan. The vision is to do so by supporting processes of `ingenious making’ through the design of a shared physical space and the creation of networks of highly skilled people from different backgrounds but with similar values.

The Officina has some truly awesome friends, to include: Studio di Archittettura PRR, who dares thinking outside the box whilst bringing tecnical expertise to the table; Quaderni di Carattere, who designed Officina Faré awesome logo; Marco B. , who, gifted with exeptional photographic skills, has been volunteered to be the unofficial OF photographer; Fluidedge in Dublin, masters of epic brainstorms at any time of the day or night; and the Catalyst team at Lancaster University, a shiny example of intellectual freedom, creativity, fun and team work.
