The world of comics continues to gain more and new audiences: after the success of events such as Lucca Comics & Games and Napoli Comicon (but already events dedicated to comics are held all over the country, from Turin to Cagliari, from Venice to Catania), even Carrara opens its doors to toons and games fans with Carrara Show – Festival dei giochi e del fumetto hosted by Carrara Fiere, the main fairgrounds of Tuscany, from May 30 to June 2, 2015.
According to Renato de Rosa, an expert on EU policies and business consulting as well as writer and author of board games, which will coordinate the event, it will be a great event in which, in addition to fans of the game will be located and comic events, productions and performances from concerts to performances, from conferences to meetings and exhibitions, by cosplayers to youtuber, able to attract and involve all types of visitors.
Provided for by sustained program (which can be downloaded from here) the participation of cartoonists such as Giorgio Cavazzano (of which will be exhibited 12 original drawings of the volume “Uomini, topi e altri eroi”), Andrea Plazzi, Luca Scatasta, Tiziana De Piero, Laura Scarpa or Lucio Parrillo, just to name a few, while for the videogames section will be present youtubers as St3pny, Cicciogamer89, il vostro caro Dexter or J0k3R in addition to Florence Studio Balzo, author of games like Song of Pan or Fablescapes, while for the cosplayer is expected among others Kicka.
To try to stand out in a landscape of events designed for gamers and comic increasingly crowded, Carrara Show has chosen to focus on three main thematic lines ( games, toons and videogames) flanked by a fourth subject line, the entertainment (cosplay, animation, science fiction, fantasy, Japanese culture, cinema, web), trying at the same time to develop immediately an identity, unique and personal, involving themes, characters and reality related to these sectors but generally neglected by other similar events. Waiting to collect your opinions on Carrara Show we just have to wish everyone all the best “good luck” and remember you to continue to follow Mondivirtuali.it even through our account on Twitter and our fanpage on Facebook (but remember: Mondivirtuali is also on Flickr, on Pinterest, on Scoop.it e su Paper.li and also on Youtube).
