Japan and South Korea Area

Places and stories so different from our own, and yet so fascinating.

At Festival del Fumetto there will be stands and initiatives to discover more about the cultures of Japan and South Korea, distant in space and time but within reach: the sights, smells and tastes of distant worlds.

As far as this topic is concerned, in pavilion D there will be the Ochacaffè association, a real info point on all facets of Japan: culture, language, travel, study, etc.

Board games area

The board games area, hosted in pavilion B of Festival del Fumetto, has been managed since its creation by the volunteers of the groups taking part in the Casa dei Giochi Project, a unique game associationism initiative in Italy, which aims to promote games and manage spaces and activities for gamers at 360 degrees. All this with the collaboration of Biblioteca Italiana dei Giochi.

During the two days of the Festival, the public will be able to try out hundreds of games of all types and for all ages under the guidance of our volunteers, from classic to the most modern board games, collectible card and role-playing games, interpretation and live games, strategy and abstract games, and of course the now famous giant games, which have always characterised the proposal of Casa dei Giochi.

In the next few days we will publish all the info on featured associations and boardgames.
