This exhibition transports you to the museum of electricity where are mentality inventive use of materials used to make parts of eco-design and construction work art, contemporary practices ill-suited to raise public realizing that small gestures of everyday life can have a major influence in building a better future. These practices are divided into 2 fields: pre-consumer and post-consumption. For pre-consumer means the recycling of waste from industrial production that is normally assumed by the industry itself, for post-consumption means the recycling of packaging waste and domestic waste.

The title was influenced by the original project Remade in Italy.
