For the first time ever in the splendid garden of the Villa Reale in Marlia, Sunday 8 September from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, a refined selection of cosplayers and exceptional photographers meet in a day of photoshooting reserved for them and visitors to the park can immerse themselves in imaginary worlds during the visit of the villa and of the park.
Already a noble residence with a glorious past, and residence in the nineteenth century by Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, sister of Napoleon and Princess of Lucca, the property covers an area of 16 hectares and includes numerous valuable gardens, botanical rarities, mighty trees, streams, a lake, and imposing buildings. This incredible variety of environments is available to the inspiration and artistic talent of cosplayers and photographers, who will be able to organize and experiment with very impressive photo sets.
And for those who still do not know the magical and fantastic world of Cosplay, its beauty, the talent and talent of those who practice it, what better opportunity to appreciate it than by walking in the enchanted foreshortenings of Villa Reale, between water games, in the shade of a tree, or sitting along the shores of the lake.
Selected participants - be they photographers or cosplayers - pay reduced admission upon entering the park. Each participating cosplayer can use a support companion, not in cosplay, who will also be entitled to a reduced admission (€ 7.00).
Due to the particular nature of the location, its beauty, and the inestimable historical and artistic value, the admission of the cosplayers to the event is possible only after passing a selection both on the basis of the intrinsic beauty of the costume and the relevance with the location itself. Entries for both cospalyer and photographers closed on July 31st.
Visitors pay the normal entry price for access to the park and the villa.
Inside the park there is also a refreshment point.
