The same restlessness that inspired American hobos today spurs on Hobos Factory to search out new geometries (? Routes?) connecting the human, professional, artistic paths of its members.
WHY HOBOS FACTORY
Hobos Factory is inspired by the figure and the philosophy of hobos in a world where, today as yesterday, all the patterns of interpretation have and continue to change rapidly. It represents the anchor, the brand of style and identity within which communication between “craftsmen” take place.
Work flexibility has given rise to the phenomenen of insecurity. Hobos Factory has taken on board these changes, and is trying to turn them to its advantage: its offices are located in a number of different regions so as to best be able to spotnew opportunities. It uses the Web as a communication collector, multiplier, and infrastructure: it aims to expand its activities by establishing projects and services in new areas in which its members are present
The ancient ethic of the first hobos is currently adhered against a more complex backdrop. still actual in a context more complex. Communication “craftsmen” travel the world as cosmopolitan masters in search of new opportunities.

The real ace up their sleeve that Hobos will make available to them is the opportunity for networking.

HOW HOBOS FACTORY COMMUNICATES ITS MESSAGE
The advantages of globalization are best realized in a world in which local identities continue to survive and prosper. Today we can ensure that through ICT, but it’s not enough. We need to spread the word to let others know that there is a place where one can successfully succeed.
Through the network of its members in Italy and abroad, Hobos Factory “goes” where its members suggest with the aim of creating projects and developing new partnerships. Thus, being in several distinct places at the same time does not mean a form of isolation, but in fact has the advantage, thanks to the internet, of increasing the possibilities available. . The internet allows Hobos reveal to the rest of the world what’s going on in a particular city, organization, environment.
The World Wide Web has thus become a modern railway able to connect its members: it put them in communication, revitalizing the old graphic signs used by hobos in the nineteenth century.
