Lucca Junior

Lucca Junior is the section dedicated to the world of childhood, a collection of comics, cartoons and games in a special pavilion for children, with lots of associated projects and events. The whole exhibition, in the end, is dedicated to children, but Lucca Junior is a special space, designed for play in the Games Collection, excitement in the Little Theatre, and learning how to work in the Creative Laboratory. With nature and ecological subjects on the one hand, Lucca Junior also provides the chance to see works by the grandmasters of illustrations for children, such as Emanuele Luzzati. The programme is made even more interesting by partnership with one of Lucca's principal cultural institutions, the Teatro del Giglio, where there are exciting gatherings and shows.
For ages 0 to 12, but up to a 100 if you want, Lucca Junior opens its doors to everyone who wants to have fun and play creatively and imaginatively with old friends and new.

The new locations and dates for this year’s Fair could not be better for the Lucca Junior section.

Our pavilion has features that are unique within the general exhibition, mainly due to the fact that it will contain ideas that are to be found in the two principal sections, Comics and Games, and ways of making the best use of them, in a special place for children – in other words, spaces for meetings and presentations, opportunities to play and experiment through creative laboratories, theatrical shows, comic laboratories, multi-media entertainment products, quality publishing offers, etc.

The advantage of a location which is no longer restricted to the fair area on the outskirts of town and the favoured position allocated to the Junior area (at the heart of the Fair with an independent exhibition area of 700 m²) will mean, in fact, that the pavilion will no longer be seen as a meeting place for fans only but also as an totally innovative space for children. This will be of interest to the whole of Lucca, with visibility that will attract passers-by, families and those who are merely curious.

Extending the Fair to five days, three of which can be regarded as holidays (the 1st of November, Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th) plus two working days, also offers the opportunity to open the exhibition to holiday crowds and to close with a similar number of visitors. In addition, the Thursday and Friday will be quieter and will therefore provide the perfect opportunity to welcome school parties invited to visit the exhibition and take part in the activities and laboratories, not only those which are already programmed and run by our own staff, but also those that we would like to agree with you.

I hope that the above will give you reasons to reflect. I am here to clarify anything and, if you should consider it useful, to discuss with you any means of taking part which is not specifically shown on the application form and which I have already had the chance to talk about with some of you (co-purchase of exhibition space, setting up exhibitions, agreement with a bookshop in Lucca for sales, etc).

I look forward to your positive reply and meantime send my best wishes.
