Welcome to the Communityverse


Communityverse is the term we have chosen to describe a new experimental cultural section, between the physical and digital dimension, entirely dedicated to new technologies and languages: five days of intelligent dissemination to understand and analyse the near future, with guests and experts.

Metaverse, NFT, SBT, blockchain, web3, artificial intelligence, generative art and crypto are just some of the terms that we hear and read about more and more everyday, even though we don’t always understand their meaning.

The Communityverse project at Lucca Comics & Games ambitiously aims at telling and explaining these technologies, trying to do so in a simple and direct way, through a series of guests, partners and exponents of this world, and through practical experiences, giving life to the largest Italian event in terms of content provided on the subject.

The event is taking place every day of the festival, from 28th October to 1st November in the basement of the Casermetta di San Pietro(Baluardo dei Balestrieri), in the Meeting Room “Sala R.E.C. presso la Sagrestia di San Francesco, all’East Village” and, obviously, online.

The programmed events (all with free admission) are written below. It would be preferable to reserve them by clicking on the single event in the section “Programma” (Area: Communityverse)
