Cesare Cacitti, speaker of the 4th International HRConference Barcelona 2017


Press interview with Cesare Cacitti

Cesare Cacitti is a 17 year old Italian. He speaks Italian, English and French and he is in his last year of High School.

Cesare designed and built his first 3D Printer when he was 12 years, old partially using recycled components. Then when he was 14 years old, he completely redesigned his printer in order to make it faster, smaller and more reliable.

Cesare and a group of enthusiasts founded FabLab Dueville last summer, a digital fabrication laboratory right in the city center of his town where people can use machines such as CNCs, 3D Printers and laser cutters in order to develop projects. It’s also a place where people can share ideas and attend classes about computer aided design, both in 3D and 2D.

Since November of 2014, Cesare is one of the first 100 Italian Digital Champions. In his free time he loves playing the piano and he enjoys swimming. He also loves traveling, movies and books but his real passion is DIY. His slogan: Work hard, dream big!

1. What topic will you address in your paper? Could you briefly explain how a young “maker” can motivate others with the help of new technologies?

I will talk about my story from the beginning, talking about all the difficulties I’ve encountered and how I was able to overcome them.                                                                                                                                                                                         In my opinion a maker can motivate others with technology because he is able to use technology in unconventional ways, stimulating people to be creative.

2. What technology means to you?

I think that technology is a tool that enables you to discover and experiment.

3. What does it take to be a young ‘maker’?

To be a maker you have to be motivated and passionate about the work you are doing, in fact a maker is a person who creates objects from  scratch or modifies them, often driven by the ambition of creating (or improving) a tool that makes his life easier. The idea of sharing is also very important in the maker community: there are many forums and websites where makers exchange design files for free in order to spread the knowledge.

4. What motivates you?

I’m motivated by the desire of making my (and other’s) life easier, and also by my curiosity: i love exploring new fields of interest and then applying the informations I gathered in my projects.

5. What or who inspires you?

My biggest inspiration comes from Federico Faggin, the inventor of the first microchip who was born in my city. I also admire Steve Jobs, Massimo Banzi (the inventor of Arduino, and opensource programmable micro controller board) and Elon Musk.

6. What is your dream?

My dream is to use my knowledge in order to build something people can then benefit from, simplifying their lives.

7. Where would you like to work?

I’d like to work wherever my knowledge can be helpful, one of my biggest passion is designing mechanical things, but also programming. I don’t know a precise name of a company where I’d like to work, but it’s really important for me to work in a place where I feel useful.

8. Have you decided what you are going to study at the University?

I’d like to study Computer Science abroad, but I’m also considering Aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering.

9. Do you think it is necessary to promote the “maker” mentality from school? If so, why?

I think that it’s extremely important to introduce the maker mentality in school, for a couple of hours every year because as Steve Jobs said “people don’t know what they want until you show it to them”. In fact the best way to connect students with the maker community is through school, instead of waiting for them to randomly get in contact with it.

10. Are more “Maker Labs” and more funding for the makers’ projects needed?

I feel like the number of Maker Labs should increase, but I also think that quality is better than quantity. More funding for the makers’ projects is definitely going to be helpful, but it’s also true that I had my most creative ideas when the budget for my project was low.

11. What are your expectations about the Conference? What knowledge would you like to bring to the audience?

I’m looking forward into meeting and networking with inspiring people. I’d like to bring my experience and prove that if you are passionate enough about something you can achieve it.

  • Advantage Consultores is a great and very professional company. They work with people and for people, finding the best professionals available at all times on the market, without forgetting the fit with the team and with the philosophy of our company. This is vital for our business.

    Antoni Balanyà, Business Manager at New Yorker Spain.

  • I worked with Sylvia during several years. During this time I could discover probably the best Executive Search that I have worked with during my 15 years of experience. Sylvia is a high responsible, fully involved & competent professional. In addition to all of these, she really cares & listens to the people that she works with. Sylvia has my highest personal & professional recommendation.

  • The most efficient and accurate search process for one of our profiles most difficult to find. It has been closed in a record time with a perfect profile.

    Emma Giner International HR Director at Massimo Dutti

  • As a professional in the HR sector, I have dealt with many consultants, but the level of professionalism I have seen at Advantage Consultores, from my point of view as a candidate, was excellent. Not only for the received treatment and feedback at each step of the process, but also for the level of detail and knowledge of the project itself, since it is not usual for the consultant to know so much about the company. Your high professional and human level makes me recommend you without any doubt.

    Diana Arias

  • Thank you very much for accompanying me with such professionalism and empathy in these important moments of my professional life. Thank you for helping me reflect and see in a positive and realistic way the amount of opportunities that arise as a result of change. Thank you for accompanying me and for recommending me to your own networking in such an individualized way... and above all, thanks for making me see and value my own abilities to achieve the challenges and professional goals. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
