In 2016 an informal group of young people in Taranto decided to start a civic crowdfunding campaign to bring for the first time a fablab in the old town of Taranto. In the end, they collected 15k€. They gave those money to the Municipality, which in return assured to host the fablab into an abandon historic palace owned by the municipality. In August 2019, after a lot of bureacracy, the association signed the agreement, so now we are starting.
This is the general thread for discussing the lab; the thread is also visible on its page at https://www.fablabs.io/labs/daquinolab
