COMIC RELIEF: Salvatore Ferragamo is bringing a fashionable touch to the upcoming edition of annual comic book and gaming convention Lucca Comics & Games, held in Lucca, Italy, Oct. 30 – Nov.3.

Florence’s Fondazione Ferragamo will take part in the event showcasing “The birth of a dream,” the graphic novel based on the late Salvatore Ferragamo’s life which New York-based artist Frank Espinosa created for the “The Amazing Shoemaker — Fairy Tales and Legends about Shoes and Shoemakers” exhibition held at the fashion company’s museum until March 2014.

The graphic novel will be exhibited at the Santa Maria dei Servi Church. The location will also host the best comics by the artists who participated to the ComicsJam marathon last June in Florence, where more than 100 cartoonists created graphic novels featuring shoes as the main theme.
