From Friday 16 to Sunday, March 18 in Milan (Italy) was held the 19th edition of Cartoomics, one of the biggest Italian events in this sector: more than 42,000 visitors, the only event in Italy to have 1,000 square meters of sci-fi area .

An event where rebel legion italian base and 501st legion italica garrison were directly involved in the organization.

More than 60 people in star wars costume during the event who made several parades, but also: the “star wars group” was more than 70 people at the same hotel, 2 dinners (Friday and Saturday) with more than 50 people every night, therefore a lot of fun.

In addition to the Italian members, attended by friends from garrison and bases of various countries: Monaco, Spain, France and Switzerland.

Numerous booths star wars (such as Lego Star Wars and Microsoft with preview of Kinect Star Wars for xbox360), also ludosport (lightsaber combat academy), Tusken Raiders, and of course the 501st Legion Italica Garrison and Rebel Legion Italian Base.

several large spaces themed:
- a 3D set (9 meters) death star-millennium falcon hangar with IG-88 lifesize
- 40 square meters tatooine desert with luke’s landspeeder, 2 droids R2D2 and C3PO, and a big moisture evaporator condensator.
- 40 square meters tatooine tusken camp.
- an imperial outpost.
- a big rebel X-Wing (10 meters).

The charity partner was LILT, Italian League fight cancer, which has raised more than 1,000 euros in donations.

It was also created a special new patch common for 2 groups of costuming (which will be sold in the merchandising section).

Event splendidly successful, a good foundation for a next edition in March 2013, even bigger.
