Seven years ago, Francesco Pelaia’s passion for repairs motivated him to open Aggiustotutto, the first Repair Café in Italy, together with a group of friends. The concept of repair cafes is that people gather and volunteer to repair their objects and appliances. Francesco believes that it is important to establish an emotional relationship with objects in order to understand their value; and that every object, no matter how old or broken, can find a new function and purpose.
“The term “solidarity economy” encompasses everything- recycling, reuse, repair, and solidarity between people; therefore the possibility of exchanging objects and exchanging experiences to make the most of the planet’s resources.”
“The emotional relationship between objects and people is essential and it can break the chain of commodification of disposable consumption.”
