The Regali Senza Moneta (or Gifts Without Money) initiative, is a barter-based marketplace located in Turin, Italy. Participants can come together to exchange objects, services and knowledge. Money is banned from the market, which aims to affirm the value of exchange and create connections.
La Stampa reports:
How does it work Those wanting to particpate in the event have to bring something that can be exchanged, which can also include a skill or a knowledge service. Stalls are available and these can be booked by sending a mail to senzamoneta(at)manamana.it. During recent SenzaMoneta events that we organised in the city, continues Donisie, we have seen some really fun things: dinner invitations in exchange for objects, or a live one-hour long music performance in exchange for a one hour plumber intervention. The whole idea is to go beyond the idea of the financial value of things, but rather exchange them with whatever our free immagination can come up with.
