The year was 1980 and on Rai channels, after the great invasion of the Japanese animes, Rio Kabuto was screaming «Mazin-Go !», creating the greatest masterpiece of the Master Go Nagai: Mazinga-Z. The exhibition Mazin – Go! starts right from there, framed by the Giardino degli Osservanti of the Japan Town at Lucca Comics & Games.

The 32 plates will be premiered nationally (curated by the Cultural Association AMICI DI GO NAGAI) and they will include artworks by some of the most prominent Italian artists when it comes to comics.
