Fans of animation, video games and comics will not want to miss the annual Cartoon Festival in Milan, which takes place February 4-5. Featuring a number of events and appearances from some of the world's most beloved cartoon characters, the event could be a great day out for families taking a car hire in Italy on a motoring holiday.
The festival will be held at the Parco Esposizioni Novegro. One of the highlights of this year's event is the Potteraduno, a celebration of the magical world featured in the Harry Potter books and films. Visitors can expect to see fans dressed as their favourite characters from the series, and will be able to attend magic classes in a recreation of Hogwarts Castle.
In addition to magic and wizardry, attendees can see the works of Italian art studio Robopop, participate in the highly anticipated costume competition, and play the latest video games. There will also be an extensive marketplace where guests can purchase comics, books, DVDs and electronic gadgets.
A car hire in Milan could be a great way for comic book aficionados to reach the festival.
