The Open Laboratory of Modena, yesterday and today.

At the beginning of the ‘900, close to the historic center of Modena, stood the AMCM sector, home of the Municipal Electricity Companies (AEM) that managed the tram power network, to facilitate the extension to serve the new districts that would soon become part of the city perimeter.

The re-functionalization of the former AEM, which became the headquarters of the Open Laboratory of Modena, took place using the European resources of Axis 6 (sustainable, intelligent and attractive cities) that allowed to redevelop the spaces, set up and start the management of the Open Laboratory and support its integrated promotion at national and European level.

The first concrete projects for the regeneration of this building of industrial archeology are therefore born thanks to the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020, which the Emilia-Romagna Region has also used to return to citizens, places destined to become centers of knowledge exchange for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

The Open Laboratory is today a hub of research, innovation and experimentation for culture, entertainment, and creativity, as well as a meeting point and a workspace between professionals, start-ups and institutions, open to citizens, and a center of activities, events, workshops.
