Torino Comics 2023: an increasingly accessible event
An event that is becoming increasingly accessible and family friendly: accessibility and inclusiveness are in fact the keywords of this year.
“Be your superhero” is the official poster, designed by Gabriele Dell’Otto, Roman cartoonist and illustrator famous all over the world, as well as guest of honor at the event. Dell’Otto has been collaborating with the Marvel universe since 1998, first for the European division and then, from 2022 for Marvel USA.
The protagonist is a probable little girl who dialogues with nature and with technology, with her hand on the lever to control a mecha (Japanese robot with vintage technology). Because each of us can be a superhero.
At Torino Comics 2023 www.torinocomics.com the theme of accessibility develops on two fronts. On the one hand, making the event and the spaces of Lingotto Fiere usable also for people with disabilities; on the other, raising public awareness of the difficulties and sensitivities of people with disabilities.
The family area
Another novelty for 2023 is the protected relaxation and play area, in collaboration with Carioca, where families and the very young can access freely during all event days. Twice a day there is a real itinerary of activities with magic shows, animated readings and much more. This area is the result of an increasingly determined commitment by Torino Comics to make the event accessible to everyone, at any age.
This year Torino Comics 2023 opens to schools with educational projects, workshops and meetings dedicated to students of all ages. To date, more than 50 classes of primary and secondary schools of I and II level have already joined, coming from the territory but also from other regions of Central Italy.
