The birth of the poster explained by Sergio Algozzino

--> Below are Sergio Algozzino's statements about the birth of the poster:

If too many quotations in the narrative field can disturb and divert the reader's attention, an image built on them can instead be a fun game based on research. When I was asked to design the poster for Lucca Collezionando, being by definition "the Vintage-Pop Comics Festival", I therefore tried to reason on a concept of this kind by taking it to the limit.

I proposed two scenarios, the first set in a flea market, the second in a collector's room. In both cases, the protagonist would always be a girl who was born to be a living quotation herself. Between the two, the room was preferred, and I started to define everything, with all those little pictures that were supposed to show her passions. The problem is that after having drawn twenty or thirty they always seemed a few to me, so they became forty, fifty and so on. In truth I hadn't really counted them until I really felt like I'd filled enough, delivering the poster with 76 quotes. But 76 was a really stupid number! What could be better than a nice round number, among other things the emblem of a decade that was in vogue in that sense?



Lucca Collecting posters

In truth, a rule that I set for myself right away was to be as democratic as possible, to make the game usable for everyone : It didn't have to be limited to just one generation and one medium of entertainment. Thus, inside you can find references to comics of all nationalities, video games, films, television series and games, from all eras. When it began to be clear that we could officially launch a challenge to find them all, I also tried not to be too mean, carefully avoiding inserting works that were difficult to recognize. So I hope people enjoy it.

From a technical point of view, you had to create a poster adaptable to various formats on precise measurements, and this too was a challenge, but only for me. However, I drew by dividing all the planes, in this way I was able to move and recalibrate the various objects in the different compositions, this means that in the end each version you will see of the poster is different in its own way from the others, not simply cropped in that format . For the colours, I had initially thought of a nocturnal atmosphere, similar to certain chromatic inclinations of mine, but having to think about the aspect linked to the recognizability of the quotations, covering many parts with shadows or dark colors would have made everything difficult to read.

The guests of Lucca Collecting 2023

The rich cultural program at Lucca Collecting 2023 expects the presence of over 60 protagonists who will be at the center of numerous meetings, signing copies and presentations not to be missed. Saturday will be an opportunity to meet Elena Mirulla, attend the Omino Bufo award ceremony delivered by Alfredo Castelli and leave your handprint on the Lucca Comics and Games Walk of Fame together with Alfonso Font and Claudio Villa.
