Lucca Comics & Games has a long history of beneficial activities behind it that have intensified in the last ten years, becoming a regular appointment within the event.
In fact, every year it reserves to the Onlus Area Performance association, a space in which the greatest fantasy artists are involved in a 4-day live painting show.
This year 50 artists have donated their works which have been sold to collectors for a total of 24 thousand euros, donated to charity to the pediatric ward of Lucca and to Dinamo Camp. In addition, this year, Lucca Games will also help Emergency and the Community of Sant’Egidio.
There were works by Emanuale and Federica Manfredi, Giuseppe Del Luca, Francesco Francavilla, Linda Cavallini, Gabriele Stazi, Emanuela Lupacchino and many other emerging and already established artists. The Disney designs by Giorgio Cavazzano, Marko Djurdjevic and Antonio de Luca and Lucio Parrillo have had great success, but above all Lucio Parrillo, whose works by the Lord of the Rings were sold for 1,700 euros.
The proceeds from last year’s auction amounted to € 24,600, and were presented with a symbolic check to the mayor of Lucca Alessandro Tambellini, to the pediatric chief Raffaele Domenici, together with the president of Lucca Comics & Games Francesco Caredio and the co-director Emanuele Vietina.
