12 days. 110 people from all over the world.


One mission: design a commons-based society.

The socio-economic system that has characterized


the development of industrial society
no longer responds to the growing need for
adaptation of the network society
to the pressing global challenges.

Our interest is focused on the collaborative


economy by and for people, based on
economic models that creates social and
environmental distributed value.

Theory and practice to enable the transition to


economies based on emerging collaborative
practices, to promote their shift from marginal
to dominant paradigms.

An experience that aims to combine the skills


of Homo sapiens and Homo faber to bind
tradition and innovation, locality and
globality.
The Homo ludens is also invited to join us!

Commons Camp
The mission of the Commons Camp is to build and nurture a collaborative society,
bridging people, organisations and ideas.
We want to experiment a contamination of thinking and making, connecting the
dots between makers and permaculturists, hackers and biohackers, researchers
and artists, local administrations and social innovators.
The Commons Camp is structured in 3 parallel labs:
Collaborative Territories Lab - co-design jam to develop an open toolkit for communities and local players to embrace the collaborative paradigm.
Rural Making Lab - an hybridation path between permaculture and digital fabircation, to experiment different technologies that aims to reach energetic, food and
housing self-sufficiency;
Bio-Commons Lab - theoretical and practical experience around biohacking and
bioartistic approach to reflect on the need of keeping the living a commons, and
make life sciences open and decentraised.
All this will be mixed up with lots of fun, indie music and local food. Do not miss the
FoodStock Festival the 5th of July!

With the Collaborative Territories Lab we want to lay the foundations for an extended open standard of collaborative territories development programs. A series of organisations and individuals
will gather during a five days design jam to put their expertise in building a common standard of
actionable knowledge that tackle some of the major challenges of our society.
The final result of the Lab will be the release of an open governance toolkit to provide solutions
and to foster a collaborative mindset within local and central authorities, reaching a turning point
where collaborative practices became key elements of territorial strategic development.
In particular the toolkit aims at activating inclusive co-design processes engaging with the active
citizenship, local decision makers, businesses, residents, and all the pro-active local players. The
Collaborative Territories Toolkit help territories to self-determine their strategy in line with smart,
sustainable and inclusive development, identifying locally perceived challenges and enabling
already available resources and solutions that comes from the emerging paradigm of the collaborative economy.
On the long-term, the Collaborative Territories Toolkit means to create a compelling strategy for a
sustainable value-chain based development, in contrast to pure profit-driven illimitate growth. In
order to do that, is essential to identify the impacts on citizens and local government, of the solutions it suggest. Furthermore, by eliciting the governance models that can be adopted, it clearify
the role that local governments and other local players can take on.
During the Collaborative Territories Lab we will work on several aspects of the toolkit:
Ethnography and Design epistemology
Co-design methodologies in territorial strategic development
Communication and Transmedial narrative
Economical sustainability;
Social impact;
Collaborative governance and legislative aspects;
Quantitative analysis

A journey of 10 days for makers and permaculturist to understand the potential of the
hybridation between permaculture and digital fabrication. Self-sufficiency through
construction, design, agriculture and innovation.
The Rural Making lab will take place in the Mulini area and will provides a learning path
through six workshops. You can choose to participate to the full experience or come
only for specific workshops.

1. Eco-Buildings: We will create our own space realizing a geodesic dome with recovered material founded in the area.

DIY

2. Digital Fabrication Lab: We will have 3D printers and laser cutting machines to experience a rapid prototyping approach in the rural context.

3. Renewable Energy: We will produce electrical energy building an hydroelectric turbine to power tools and lights. Combining permaculture and digital fabrication we will
build a pyrolytic oven to heat water.
4. Synergetic Laboratory: We will design and realize a vegetable garden studying the
intercropping and learning how to manage the soil.
5. The Science of the Bees: We will study and build the hives, in traditional variants,
permacultural and open-source, helping the natural environment through the bees.
Well use carpentry and digital fabrication tools.
6. Hackathon!: We will choose the best project. We'll split into groups and use all what
we have learned in the previous six days to propose an innovative solution for the transition.

Today, the definition of human being is going through a very marked transition. The emotions and the desire as fundamental expressions of the body and of human existence, have
moved from the domain of philosophy and aesthetics at the center of media theory. The
new types of media and networks face in real time on a hillside where the increasing biologization of communication technologies makes emotions and desire increasingly quantifiable functions of the market.
Moreover, with increasing knowledge and technical skill, the sphere in which intentional intervention in nature are possible will further be expanded. Alternative IP regimes such as
open-access and open-source are already helping to leverage the cost for research and
development in the life sciences.

Citizens proposed a Bio-Commons model, made of technological and legal frameworks,


to put the living and the innovation of life sciences into service of society and at the same
time limit the potential misuse of knowledge and material. In the Bio-Commons lab we will
extend this research project with other groups, nailing down case-studies to test the
Bio-Commons license model to other scale of living things: from molecule to human and
non-human bodies, from species to ecosystems. We want to explore novel forms of ethical
and juridical deliberation, empowered by the diffussion of powerful technologies that allow
the civil society to keep and bring back nature in to the Commons.
How does the tangible and intangible commons of the living can be protected through
new forms of legal order and ubiquitous technology?
A meeting to define what is bio-value and bio-capital in the age of ubiquitous biotechnologies and of smart communities. 3 days of unconferences, workshops and biohacking to
build togehter the Bio-Commons.

"The key is in to re-gard the places, in the double sense of respect them and to get back at them.
Franco Cassano

The digitized universe in which we live every day can now be represented as a domain of complex narrative,
in which the techniques of storytelling become powerful tools that can be used to give new light to the elements that characterize the history and culture of rural places in their specific sense: the identity, traditions
and landscape.
Sound, technology, new media are invaluable tools to describe a rural area, and it's not just a stereotyped
story.
The interconnected present reduce geographical barriers and eliminates the difference between the modern
metropolitan and rural areas which anchored to the past. This process have the ability to powefully project in
the infosphere all the innovative experiences of those who have chosen to experiment with new forms of life
at the edge. An edge that is neither inside nor outside the modernity, shaping these experience into critical elements to rethink and perform new forms of future.
We want to see you in the CommonsCamp, a #smartrurality experience held in the liminal areas of RuralHub,
to rediscover the importance of determining the boundaries between what we knew and what we should
know.

we are building tomorrow together
