About the group

Repair Cafe Pavia

Repair Cafe Pavia is the 1st Repair Cafe in the Provincia di Pavia. Set up in 2015 after talking to my friend Claire Downey in Dublin, who set up the 1st Repair Cafes in Ireland, and a trip to Rome to visit Aggiustotutto Repair Cafe Roma, the 1st Repair Cafe in Italy.

We are a group of volunteers who are passionate about developing the local reuse and repair culture and we strongly believe in the power of community groups to bring about positive social and environmental change on a local level.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. But we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
