And Orlando becomes….”Curious”
The Lucca Comics and Games exhibit, L’Orlando Curioso will be held at
the Fortezza di Mont’Alfonso (Castelnuovo di Garfagnana) until November 1st
Inspired by the Italian epic poem L’Orlando Furioso by Ludovico Ariosto, governor of Castelnuovo between 1522 and 1523, L’Orlando Curioso is an adaptation where the true theme of this renaissance poem is placed at the forefront: the eternal journey of discovery.
The event revolves around the exhibit located on the two floors of the
arched buildings, every day from 10 am to 1 pm and from 3 pm to 6 pm.
A section of the exhibit is dedicated to the works created specifically by the “Four Musketeers of the Italian Fantasy Illustration”: Paolo Barbieri, Dany Orizio, Lucio Parrillo e Luca Zontini.
The works will be published as an accompanying volume that will be realized, graphically highlighting the creative process through which the adaptation of Ariosto’s characters came to life.
The book will be published as a special issue of ImagineFX , the magazine will be published in Italian by Wyrd Media Publishing .
