Rome, October 30 - The Walt Disney Company and
Lucca Comics and Gamers will launch celebrations for the 80th
anniversary of Mickey Mouse's Italian editorial debut from
November 1-4.
The white-gloved mouse with saucer-like ears was introduced
into comic-book form in Italy 80 years ago in December 1932 -
just four years after Walt Disney conceived the character in Los
Angeles, California.
The Florentine editor Giuseppe Nerbini printed the first
number of the Italian Mickey Mouse comic book, which filled just
eight pages.
Nerbini called the character "Topo Lino" - a play on the
Italian word "topolino" which means "little mouse" and later
became known and beloved by generations of Italians.
"Topolino" is now in its 2973th edition, and has become an
integral part of Italian childhood with its spoofs on authority
figures, winners, losers, avarice and other peccadilloes of
everyday life.
The Italian publisher is issuing a special volume to
celebrate Mickey's 80th birthday with emblematic comic strips
from each decade, and tales of curiosities and events that made
the history and marked the rise of "Topolino".
Twelve representative covers marking the evolution of
Mickey Mouse over time have been gathered in a Disney 2013
"Topolino Anniversary" calendar.
On December 26, with edition number 2979 of the comic book,
a special celebratory edition will be released with Mickey Mouse
as hero in a tale about the history of comic books.
There will also be a celebratory exhibit at the WOW Spazio
Fumetti comic museum in Milan called "History of a story", which
runs from November 15 to January 20, 2013, and traces Mickey
Mouse's passage from the early days to the iPad.
