After the celebrations of the twentieth anniversary of last year, the great success for the Area Performance continues also for 2019. Also this year the auction of original works and illustrations made by the greatest world artists of fantasy and comics was held, on the occasion of the international festival Lucca Comics & Games.
In an auction that sold out around our stand, the sum of € 29,990 was collected, a sum that will be divided into the approved projects, that is, between Emergency, the Community of Sant’Egidio and the pediatric ward of the hospital of Lucca.
Also this year we have been showing great support from the authors, in fact we received the works of over 100 masters comics and fantasy as gifts, some of which will then be auctioned online on the Catawiki website.
The proceeds from the online auction will go entirely to Emergency, the humanitarian association founded in Milan in 1994 to bring help to civilian victims of wars and poverty.
So this year too we just have to thank you and invite you to continue following us on our social networks and above all subscribe to our mailing list at the bottom of the page.
On the occasion of Collezionando 2019 to be held on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March, the charity auction returns on Catawiki with proceeds in favor of Emercency.
The auction is already active and will remain so until the deadline set on Tuesday 26 March at 20:00.
After the twenty-year record-breaking auctions, the ONLUS offers 41 original plates of great artists, cartoonists, fantasy and science fiction illustrators from all over the world in a charity auction.

Five of these will also be on display directly at Collezionando,
the exhibition dedicated to collectible comics and other collateral worlds, signed by Lucca Crea srl, (the company that organizes the Lucca Comics & Games festival and that manages the Polo Fiere) and Anafi (National Association of Friends of Comics and Illustration) in collaboration with the Municipality of Lucca.
All the works were carried out on the occasion of Lucca Comics & Games 2018 and the proceeds will be donated to the Pediatric Center in the Mayo refugee camp in Sudan, a few kilometers from the capital Khartoum.
At this link you will find all the info of the important project that, thanks also to your help, we want to carry out together with Emergency.
