The Cartoon Festival that aims to put the narration drawn at the center of the capital scene.

In Rome we are preparing for an intense weekend of artistic activities that will see five great exclusive exhibitions starting from “MACROMANARA – All started with a Roman summer” (from May 26 to July 9, 2017) the great exposition devoted to the Master of the Eros Milo Manara and in particular his relationship with Rome and cinema, from Caravaggio and Borgia to Cinecittà with Federico Fellini and his great dives, as well as Sara Pichelli, the Italian superstar who draws for Marvel Comics and who has signed the official poster of this 2017 edition of the Festival; Gigi Cavenago the Dylan Dog Designer and All Nightmares by Sergio Bonelli Publisher; Mickey and Disney according to the “French touch” of Glénat through a collective exhibition of the four artists of the altar: Cosey, Keramidas, Loisel and Tébo; And again the well-known Bianca Bagnarelli, she was the founder of Delebile Edizioni and author of the Nobrow, Nobel Prize winner of the Bartoli Prize at the second edition of ARF !.
