UmbriaCon where the surprises never end

Umbria, the small central region that borders Tuscany, Marche and Lazio; it is a very small region, yet on January 20th and 21st, it managed to host an event that I would dare to define as huge. This was held in the Bastia Fiere area, in Bastia Umbra. Thanks to its central location, Umbria is well connected with the rest of Italy, making it convenient if you want to reach the place concerned by public transport. The event took place inside three large pavilions: two in which to shop and look for particular objects to add to your collection relating to anime, manga, films, video games and much more, a third where you could mainly try out old cabinets , try out airsoft rifles, play guitar hero or even… do group dances. Furthermore, a stage was installed on which comedians of the caliber of Maccio Capatonda or singers such as Cristina D’avena and Giorgio Vanni performed. Also present were authors such as Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Sio from Scottecs magazine. But the surprises don’t end there, in fact the Federic Store was also present at the fair, with Federic95ita, Dlarzz, Haxo, Frozen, Gravier and Francesco Pardini. Not to mention the guest who aroused the most interest among young people, Dario Moccia. For being its first edition, Umbriacon was definitely a success, both for the number of attendees and for the atmosphere that was created, in which one could perhaps see a hint of what Lucca comics was, a an environment for people who are passionate about products that only they care about, an environment in which to have fun without having to wait in huge queues, without having to elbow through the crowd, in which they can calmly see the products to buy and in which they can talk to their idols in all calm laughing and joking like long-time friends. We will see how this fair evolves, hoping that it does not get ruined over time and with the increase in participants.
