Events & Culture

We do things, we see people. We play, we make people play. We talk, we listen.


Festivals, meetings, competitions, conventions, exhibitions, game libraries, conferences, awards: We’ve really been up to all sorts of things!

Our activities

In this page you will find a selection of the many events we organized.

Festival Italiano dei Giochi
(Italian Games Festival)

This one has been our most wonderful journey: it is forever emblazoned in the minds of those who lived it.

Archivio Italiano dei Giochi
(Italian Games Archive)

The idea behind the AIG was to create a documentation center for the recovery, conservation and promotion of a cultural heritage continuously scattered, in an operation aiming to enhance our knowledge: Culture, not Marketing of Culture.
The word “game” embodies so many different things, it brings together so many different objects, some more beautiful than others: This project wants to study the positive, cultural and social values of the Game.


At the end of it all, what we really like to do is… to play, of course! There’s the one who likes friendly matches, the one who prefers puzzles, the one who enjoys role playing (and larping!), the one who always strives to try new games, the one who thrives in playtesting, and the one (I wonder who this might be…) who is addicted to the adrenaline of the competition.
