• Guest Blog Post: ItLUG's Mattoncini in Villa and Mattoncini in città


    April 14-15th ItLUG held not one but two important events in Italy: "Mattoncini in Villa", in the town of Villa di Serio (near Bergamo) and "Mattoncini in città", in the town of Udine, in north-eastern Italy.

    "Mattoncini in Villa" was at its third edition, and to the two classic gyms we used in the past for the exhibition, a third one was added this year, and it really helped with the children play area and with the flow of visitors. At the event we displayed our two community projects built last year, the reproduction of the "Centro Piacentiniano" of Bergamo (for the first time so close to its "hometown", Bergamo), and the "Pirellone", the reproduction, almost 2 meters tall, of the historical Milan skyscraper, that is generally in display inside the actual building (it's back there now, if you happen to pass by, right at the entrance). Besides these big projects we also had dozens of other MOCs and activities for the public and for AFOLs (like a LEGO® Serious Play course).

    The other event of the week-end was "Mattoncini in città" in Udine, also at its third edition. We had many great creations there too (some of which recently seen in the Kockice event in Croatia), just let me point out the amazing 1960s train display, with a huge brick-built LEGO Gnome/Mascot and all its little "brothers".
