about-logo

ToscanaBricks is born in 2012 thanks to a small group of fans. the following year the first LEGO event happens in Tuscany: Mattoncini a Palazzo.
Our group of enthusiasts will then plan a lot more events in Tuscany, also working closely with other rLUGs (Recognized LEGO® Users Groups).

ToscanaBricks members took parts in most of other main italian events by other rLUGs from 2014, at Fan WeekEnds in Skærbæk, Denmark and Paredes de Coura in Portugal.
From just a bunch of people, the group has grown into the biggest in Tuscany, boasting more than 80 members nowadays.

The historical Mattoncini a Palazzo event, then became Ludicomix Bricks & Kids. Its first edition was also a success. Year by year the group improved quality of the exhibit works, involved more external exhibitors, with special care to involve kids and the public in creative activities, laboratories, and the like.

In 2014 we’ve been the first group of AFOLs to bring LEGO bricks to a international event, Lucca Comics and Games, in Lucca, Tuscany, together with Lucca Junior – kids-focused – at the Family Palace building. The event was repeated three times till 2016.

In november 2017, Bricks in Florence Festival is born in Florence. The first live building event is organised with the Opera del Duomo di Firenze group to build the Duomo cathedral, Campanile di Giotto belfry and Battistero di San Giovanni baptistery.

Members join at least monthly to coordinate group work, improve their building skills, greet new members, plan events and so on. Our events include major LEGO themes like City, Castle, Star Wars, Classic & Vintage, Pirates, Friends, Architecture, Technic, Bionicle, amongst many others.

ToscanaBricks aims to share the passion for the LEGO building system of bricks, to develop creativity and building based skills in anyone of us.
