Festivals, exhibitions, international guests, artists and comics – this is the mix that makes COMICON International Pop Culture Festival an event that brings over 150,000 to Naples every year. This year, for the first time ever, the event also comes to Bergamo for a three-day festival that will be part of the official programme of the Italian Capital of Culture 2023.
Founded in 1998 as the International Comics Fair in Naples, by a group of friends bonded by a passion for comics, over the years it became one of the most active producers of events, exhibitions and pop culture content in Europe, also due to the organisers' tenacity.
Focusing on comics, anime and manga, video games, TV series, cinema, role-playing and boardgames, music, visual arts, cosplay and pop culture, Comicon is among the five biggest pop festivals in Europe.
Magister of this 23rd edition of COMICON 2023 will be Giorgio Cavazzano, a legend of comic strip humour and one of the most translated Italian cartoonists in the world.
As of this year, however, the winner of the COMICON Cosplay Challenge PRO competition will fly to Austria to represent Italy at the Tournament of Championship!
Therefore, an opportunity not to be missed, awaits us at the wonderful Mostra d'Oltremare exhibition centre in Naples
