FS Italiane protagonist at Maker Faire 2018

Rome, 12 September 2018

Reduced admission prices for Trenitalia customers and CartaFRECCIA members to FS Italiane's space dedicated to children and youngsters' educational activities and active participation in the event-preview at the Capodimonte Museum.

The FS Italiane Group is protagonist at the sixth edition of Maker Faire - The European Edition, scheduled at the Fiera di Roma from 12 to 14 October.

Trenitalia, the Official Carrier of the event, is offering entry to the Maker Faire at a reduced price (7 euros instead of 12) to all travellers with simple regional or supra-regional travel tickets who arrive in Rome on the days of the Fair and to passengers on Trenitalia Frecce trains destined for Rome between 10 and 15 October, as well as to CartaFRECCIA members.

Tickets at reduced rates can only be purchased at the ticket office on the days of the event by showing your train ticket.

At the Fair, FS Italiane will play a leading role with a large space entirely dedicated to creativity and teaching for the whole family. Awaiting children and adults are workshops in which to build reproductions of trains; smart mobility paths with micro robots to be programmed; educational activities on responsible behaviour during travel, and play areas.

While waiting for Maker Faire to kick off, the FS Italiane Group will also be protagonist of a preview event ahead of the main fair: The Big Hack - #Hacknight@Museum, a full immersion into computer sciences that will be held at the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte of Naples on the 6 and 7 of October. This is a preview event where Rete Ferroviaria Italiana will present the Train Map Localization challenge on the development of solutions that use the geo-location feature on portable devices to improve monitoring and consequently efficiency on the entire railway system.

FS's partnership is renewed and enriched with what is presented as the most important event dedicated to technological innovation and digital culture in Europe, which in 2017 attracted 100 thousand visitors.
