Dear Mr. Door tree, I definitely see what you mean.
I was born in Lucca (1967) and have always been a huge fan of the Salone internazionale dei Comics, where I used to go with my dad back in the seventies.
In the early nineties a ticket was introduced and it was the beginning of the end.
In the wink of an eye the whole thing switched from genuine, "underground" passion to high level corporate marketing.
My last visit was in 2006 and I didn't know if I was in Tokio or in Rio de Janeiro...
Many thanks for your amazing board where I always find unsuspected jewels of literature, art and pop culture.
