The Neverending Story

Area Performance against The Nothing, as in “The Neverending Story”. To mark the 40th anniversary from its release, Lucca Comics & Games in collaboration with Longanesi will encourage the artists of the Area Performance to realize works inspired by the novel, its unforgettable characters and the several narrative cues left open. 

“The Neverending Story” by Michael Ende is one of the greatest books of our time, suitable for everyone, young and old alike. It enchanted and conquered the hearts of generations of readers, overcoming to this day the threat of the Nothing.

The works realised in this occasion will be sold in a special section of the final charity auction, on Sunday 3rd November.
