Lucca Comics & Games “Live@Viareggio”


As a result of the collaboration between the cities of LuccaandViareggio, in the evocative setting of the Belvedere delle Maschere (piazza Mazzini), this year for the first time there will be the Pop-Up Store of Lucca Comics & Games Live@Viareggio, a real pavilion that will allow visitors to experience a preview of the magic of the festival on 28 and 29 October and 1, 4 and 5 November.

Visitors will be able to enter, with free admission, a pavilion rich in content: demonstrations of the main board games, in collaboration with the Associazione Ludica Apuana, workshops to learn manga drawing, organised by the Lucca Manga School (from "Manga Junior" to "Webtoon Screenplay", from "Facial Expressions" to "Manga Screenplay"), and virtual and augmented reality experiences thanks to Nemesis.

And again, visitors will be able to enjoy Japanese-style experiences and ceremonies and admire the works exhibited in the Larraz Gallery, created by the master of the same name.

And then many comics for all tastes and all ages, with the possibility of purchasing, starting from the weekend preceding Lucca Comics & Games, the main titles (thanks to the bookshop Il Collezionista) and boardgames (by Giochi Uniti), and many unobtainable gadgets and curiosities from Japan (thanks to Anime Import).

The excitement will also continue outside the pavilion with a photoset dedicated to the "Game of Thrones", which will also test knowledge of the fantasy saga, and then the presence of Star Wars cosplayers, who will animate the promenade and with parades and simulated lightsaber duels, coordinated by EmPisa Star Wars Fan Club and Florence Knights. The Mermaids of "Mermaid Melody" will also give life to live shows and parades to the delight of young and old.
