The first edition of “Il Club dei Perdenti – Festival of Nerd Culture” arrives on 23 and 24 July in Sassari. An initiative directly from the creative forges of the Colombre association in collaboration with the Sassari Cosplay association: two days of in-depth studies, workshops and presentations are scheduled at the Orti di San Pietro di Sassari.
“In recent years – explain the organizers – the word” nerd “has taken on stratified meanings: with uncertain origins, initially, it was used as an epithet of derision towards nerd, clumsy, shy people, but today the word nerd indicates a broad cultural horizon which embraces pop and extends to the most varied specificities in the various fields of culture “.
The theme of this first edition of the Losers Club, “That strange nostalgia effect: from Stranger Things to …”, will be developed through the micro events that make up the festival.
Among the protagonists Eva Cabras, author and film critic, Giacomo Lucarini, author and content creator, Luisa Cutzu, teacher of digital shooting and editing at the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Alessandro Marongiu, literary critic, Matteo Marino, film critic, the journalists Francesca Arca and Francesco Bellu.
Mario Michele Cravero, Nicole Codanti and Jacopo Uzzau will be the protagonists of a workshop in which they will show the creative phases behind the conception and realization of a cosplay character.
There are also many workshops and – inevitable – board games. And then a treasure hunt, lots of music, screenings and film quotes.
