The Italian Comics Museum was established in 2008, born from the imagination of Gianni Bono. It represents the most important museum in Italy dedicated to the “9th art”. The museum houses and catalogues numberless original illustrated works created by leading Italian artists, all accessible to visitors. The exhibition space is spread over an area of about 3,000 square meters and divided into several rooms, each dedicated to a well known authors or cartoon character: from Sergio Tofano and his beloved Signor Bonaventura to Tex, and passing to Lupo Alberto, Diabolik, Disney characters and Jacovitti.
The remarkable sculptures and sets characterizing the museum’s exhibits were created by Renzo Pardini and Roberta Traversa, in collaboration with the authors of the comic book characters.
The museum is packed full of creative workshops and new and exciting exhibitions featuring various authors and beloved characters.
