About Us

Francesco Fortino, web designer and maker (even when it was all about diy), interested in the fields of social innovation and urban regeneration processes.

Gianluca Buttinelli, maker since long time and co-founder of Studio Superfluo together with Francesco and other collegues in 2010.

Social Making Economies is our thesis project for the Ecodesign Master of Science at Politecnico di Torino: we want to research the way local communities will work, focusing on distributed production, social innovation and knowledge sharing. We’ll share here all the information we find, such as sources, schemes, ideas and work in progress!

Prof. Paolo Marco Tamborrini, director of the Innovation course, is our thesis supervisor.

Thanks to all you guys reading this blog 🙂
