EVENT 2019 - 2020


For the third consecutive year, we were present at the Meet Me Tonight 2019!


This year in Human City the Health League superheroes found themselves wrapped in replicating DNA strands.

Our superheroes were helped by two guest stars: James Watson and Francis Crick who led us to discover the double helix of DNA and dividing cells.

The beautiful and original sculpture of the double DNA helix present at our stand was honored for the event and subsequently donated to the Pediatric Clinic of the Children's Hospital Vittore Buzzi, by Prènatal Retail Group, the group that in Italy controls the brands Prénatal, Toys Center and Bimbo Store.                                                                                                                                                   The work was created by the sculptor Riccardo Zangelmi, the only LEGO® Certified Italian Professional.

Here are some photos of the event.
