Everything is ready for the Winter Edition of the “Festa dell’Unicorno” (Unicorn Celebration) bringing the colourful world of elves, ogres and fantastic creatures to the Fortezza da Basso from 15th to 17th March 2019. “A wonderful opportunity for all the fantasy curious and lovers, who will meet in Florence, inside the premises of the Fortezza da Basso for a special edition of the event. This event follows the direction taken by the local government, aiming at deseasonalizing tourist flows and promoting tourism outside the usual channels”, stated Cecilia del Re, Councillor for the Economic Development, Tourism and Fairs of the Florence Municipality. “This Festival will be full of shows and animations for an audience of all ages, with families and young people coming from all over Italy”, commented the organisers.
Inside the monumental area, visitors will find a space entirely devoted to Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, D&D and to live role playing. There will also be an area dedicated to all Star Wars lovers, a LEGO area, a horror section (only for the bravest ones!), as well as a space devoted to The Walking Dead. Comics and cosplays will be located inside the Ghiaie Pavilion and inside the Palazzina Lorenese.
A special edition of the “Festa dell’Unicorno”, with a three-day schedule full of events which will turn Florence into the Italian capital of creativity and colours of the charming “Planet Fantasy”.
