7 October 2017 by Federica Ghimenti

Immersed in the green Tuscan hills and surrounded by centuries-old walls, Lucca is transformed every year from a medieval and fascinating European capital city of madness and fun.

Lucca Comics & Games at the end of Octobercolors the city of music, events, previews, meetings, masks and games all about comics, manga, movies and much more. The event, one of the most beautiful and largest of Europe, focuses all over the city center, between its streets and its walls, making it unique in its kind and loved by millions of people, as evidenced by the number of attendance each year ever higher. The event features international previews thanks to the presence of great names such as Warner Bros. and Marvel Comics, hosts from around the world, and the ability to play video games and role-playing games. Obviously there is also the possibility to buy gadgets and rarity in the pavilions scattered throughout the city, tasting typical Japanese dishes in the area dedicated to the village of Sol Levante, the home of the manga and having fun in search of stramberies of all kinds on┬ádisplay. But what immediately jumps to the eye as it sets foot in this alternative world and where the true soul of the event resides is the presence of cosplayers, boysand adults – who, with joy and ingenuity, enjoy playing and dressing like your favorite characters.

The cosplayers invade the streets with glamorous dresses, elaborate armor, parades and incredible interpretations that leave every visitor open. Their presence raises Lucca Comics & Games by a simple party cartoon convention where every stramber is granted and the desire to become her hero becomes reality. Do not be ashamed to ask for a photo or call them with the name of the character, for them there is no better compliment.
