Romics – april 2018

Two times every year, the comic fair of Rome. I can’t ideate new descriptions for it. It is always more huge, but the available money to people is always less and so this was the Roman fair with less profits for vendors. However here I helped the economy to rise. I feel as a patriot.




A portrait in manga style for me and my friend Paolo.

If female cosplayers were not sexy enough, the new sensation for comic fairs is body art. Young women in pants and paints. Oh boy…

Spring in 2018

We are in autumn but here I’m writing about spring? I’m late with the posts but slowly I’m make up for lost time.

This is the artificial lake built for the world exhibition of 1942 at the South of Rome. It has almond trees that as in Japan indicate the beginning of spring. We have only to wait almost 6 months to watch again this spectacle.

Snow

Snow in Rome is always an event. And it is fun to remember this at the end of Summer. It was the 26th of February. I went to work and I found the gates closed down. At 7.30 in the morning. Under snowfall. After a couple of hours someone brought the keys. Only a few were with me but however people presented to our counters. Some people is crazy.


Here some photos of my city like under an enchantment.





Winter is coming.

Sgurgola

My roots are from this little village at South of Rome, along the way to Magna Graecia. Not a Latin ground but the land of Hernici people.

I was born in Rome and this is only the place where I spent a couple of weeks every year as holidays during my childhood.

This is not more my place, my ground, my house. I feel a little sad about it.

Streetfood near my street

And now something different! In last times there is an attention to street food as a peculiar kind of nutrition. It is low-cost, fast and different from usual. However we are Italians so our street food culture is great and all taste very good. Now it is very frequent to see temporary street food markets. This was near where I live (you can recognise it as a set in “La dolce vita” film). The opportunity to eat things that you didn’t think that existed.

Romics – october 2017

Two times every year, this is an appointment that I don’t want to miss. As the same I go here in the less overcrowded day of the convention. I find some comics that I didn’t pick up previously, a lot of gadgets (as Funko), and a day immersed in one of my principal interests. And in the last years it is even the moment to taste weird foods and beverages from Asia, and a big slice of pizza with mortazza.

Romics – april 2017

Time travel. There were two more Romics editions after this one. Always the same story about backlog of posts. However we had fun at time. It is the excuse to buy comics, gadgets. And to taste strange foods and drinks from Asia. And to watch beautiful female cosplayers. We visit Romics during an entire day from the open to the closure, always in the less overcrowded day.




Due to Romics links with Japan we had the visit of Yoshiyuki Tomino, the man behind Gundam.





At the end an image of my friend Paolo together with his nephew, a eclectic cosplayer.

Damon in Rome

Damon went to visit his Ganesha Games colleagues here in Rome for two times from Malaysia, at the end of 2016 and at the start of 2017. Here in the photo a cocky Roman seagull saw during his tourist visit.

Here we are in ARSM club headquarters for some playing. Together with us Damon’s wife and Luca with his two hooligans. Rogue Stars and Run from the Dead on the menu.




Some time after, and some degrees up, at my home for more playing. And to test Star Eagles with 3D printed ships.
