The 18th edition of Model Expo Italy 2023 will take place from 4 to 5 March at Veronafiere. Many new features this year, thanks also to the collaboration with local and national associations dedicated to model making and play in all its forms.
A transversal passion
Model Expo Italy 2023, which covers over 60,000 m2, is divided into various thematic sections. In addition to the historic pavilions reserved for static modeling, model railways, Elettroexpo and the vintage market, the offer is expanded with the Brick Arena, the Play District and the new space dedicated to creativity and the know-how of doing.
Confirmed the heart of the event with the 7 areas dedicated to modeling, where the protagonist will be the “Big Tank”. In this area, thanks to the passion and work of the DLF Modeling and History Association of Pontassieve (FI), the public will be able to watch the show of the transatlantic Andrea Doria being launched. The galleons will be presented with a renewed appearance and there will also be two current units of the Italian Navy, the Caio Duilio in 1:50 scale and the aircraft carrier Giuseppe Garibaldi in 1:72 scale.
During Model Expo Italy 2023, the IPMS Association organizes some workshops for children from 6 to 15 years in the field of static modeling. On Saturday and Sunday, a competition only for IPMS members will focus on the miniature of the Frecce Tricolori aircraft.
And again model railways with ever more articulated dioramas of trains ranging from night to day, from maritime stations to those in the high mountains; the aviary that houses the acrobatics of radio-controlled planes and helicopters and the car tracks of many disciplines, from drift to slots.
