Traditionally, Cambridge, the hometown of MIT and Harvard, is considered as the hub of innovation. This particular event was devoted to the development of Italian technologies, science and electronics. Organizers of this collaborative event were the NISA (New England Italian Students Association), the Federation of Student Associations in the various universities in the Boston area (Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Northeastern University) and The General Consulate of Italy in Boston.
Primarily, Federico spoke about his professional career: winning a famous scholarship in Italy, graduating from MIT, starting his own company and becoming an Arduino CEO. Then he discussed the invention of the first Arduino board, emphasizing the Italian origin of the project, and the concept of open source.
