Intallation at Comic Salon Erlangen

For Scrollino’s our first foray into Germany, we were invited to the International Comic Salon Erlangen, a festival that only happens every two years. And what a festival it was! It took over the entire historic city center of Erlangen, with tents erected in large squares and even in the Schlossgarten, where we were located in a spacious tent with other editors, artists and creators.

How could an atmosphere get any better than that, you ask? With all the independent publishers, artists and crafters participating in the festival! Each one had something unique to show and sell, including handmade goods, innovative products, and self-published zines, books and notebooks – there was surely something for everyone! Many a friendship was struck up between creators, creating a real convivial atmosphere of unity between people from all over Italy and Europe – Scrollino® was honored to be able to take part in such a warm and welcoming festival full of wonderful people.

Cotonfioc Festival Genoa

 

Artwork: Giulio Vesprini

Cotonfioc is the Genoese festival entirely dedicated to the visual arts, independent publishing, and self-production. Born with the ambitious goal of decentralizing artistic fervor by giving a new value to peripheral urban contexts. This year the event occupied the former Psychiatric Hospital of Genoa Quarto dei Mille and left behind among others a beautiful mural by Italian street artist Giulio Vesprini with Walk-the-Line (on the photo).

Gli Altri

 

The exhibition, Genoa, Italy

The program accompanying the Cotonfioc festival in Genoa was full oftalks, workshops, and exhibitions. The main exhibition “Gli Altri – Visto da vicino, nessuno è normale” included thirty artworks dealing with the delicate theme of mental illness, the concept of “other” and that of “normality”.The exhibition presented original posters created by the use of various techniques such as illustration, abstract graphics, photography or collage.

Scrollino Origami

 

Bestseller in Genoa

Cotonfioc festival proved us again, that Italians love playful design. The Scrollino Origami was definitely the hit of the event. The fun animal-themed Scrollino  of origami paper (over 6 feet long) helps you learn how to fold an origami pelican, a bird, a frog, a whale, and other animals with step-by-step instructions. Explore the details of this Scrollino in our Online Shop.
