About Me

Materahub is an aggregator of people and business, a “space” where they meet, encourage the creation of new job opportunities and the promotion of sustainable development

Through materahub different subjects provide their expertise and ideas to valorise the local and regional community, which becomes the starting point and meeting place of national and international creative realities related to the HUB. For this reason, materahub provides spaces and resources, links and knowledge, talents, opportunities and investments to help people to turn ideas into reality. 

Materahub’s primary objective is a better quality of life, made of the rediscovery of traditional values and innovative solutions to emerging needs, with culture and creativity at the center of each project

Materahub promote know-how exchange and coworking activities, within its “officine”, with the aim to create and plan, through hubber’s work, creative yards in which give birth to new projects. Learning processes are vital for the development and empowerment of creativity and related skills, so materahub promotes new methodologies where creativity is used to make the learning path easier and much more participated by trainees/learners. 

In a historical and social context in which the only sectors that enjoy growth and prosperity are those of culture and creative enterprise, the best way to look at the future is the development of a economy of culture: an alternative way for each community who wants to exploit its skills and distinguishing social, cultural and environmental factors solving critical problems like youth unemployment and brain drain.
