The Brikmania exhibition, dedicated to the Lego world, will be held in Naples, inside Palazzo Fondi, in Via Medina 24, between October 13, 2018, and January 27, 2019.
Lego is a line of construction toys that are manufactured since 1949 by the Danish company The Lego Group. Lego consists of colourful interlocking plastic bricks and gears, figurines and various other parts, which can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct objects like vehicles, buildings and robots.
The exhibition will display models and very rare objects from the Lego collection of Wilmer Archiutti, who in the past 40 years turned his passion into a company, LAB (Literally Addicted to Bricks).
The exhibition is suitable for everyone, adults and children, and has a special dedication to the city of Naples, through a portrait of Totò, the most popular Italian comedian of all time, entirely made with Lego bricks.
At the center of the exhibition, we can find the section dedicated to the Star Wars saga. Over one million Lego bricks and more than two thousand mini-figures recreate, with great detail and amazing effects, some of the most famous scenes of the film series.
The exhibition counts several other sections, from the motorsport world, with the most beautiful cars made, of course, from Lego bricks, to the fascinating universe of pirates, with a diorama composed of one hundred thousand bricks and more than two hundred minifigures.
To complete the exhibition experience, free play areas and creative activities will ensure a full involvement of younger visitors.
Palazzo Fondi is a historic building now turned into a location for events, where art, culture, experimentation and multidisciplinarity mingle in a contemporary space, suitable for exhibitions, conferences, private events, product launches, presentations and photo shootings.
