Last year we began an ongoing collaboration with La Foresta in Rovereto. We visited them again this September to work on a few different projects.
We ran a short workshop on peer-to-peer, do-it-yourself and small scale technologies, and how they might be used in the context of La Foresta's community space. Slides are here.
We also set up a local wireless network in the space, which allows people who are nearby to connect, talk to each other and share files.

It is always a joy to spend time in Rovereto with the community of La Foresta. We're excited to watch the project develop, and very happy to continue to play a small part in this.
