Extraordinary Maker: Claudio Rinaldi

Meet Claudio Rinaldi. Resident of Ancona, founder of the town’s creative Fab Lab ‘Rinoteca’ and lifelong woodworker. “Since I was a child, I’ve always had a passion for wood. I find it emotional when the material turns into an object.” To Claudio, the act of creating is intrinsically linked with shaping one’s own future. It’s this belief that led him to establish Fab Lab ‘Rinoteca’, a workshop that blends ancient craftsmanship with innovation. “I combine traditional techniques – such as engraving and sanding – with digital solutions.” Claudio believes this enables a new generation of crafters to redefine the “Handmade in Italy” label.
