Description

The Largo Winch Adventure: From Comics to Economy is a new exhibition which invites visitors into the world of Largo Winch, the “humanist billionaire” and modern hero, for a unique experience of comics art and a contemporary economy adventure. 

With an exceptional original collection of more than 60 original artworks, manuscripts, artefacts, reproductions, videos and sets, the exhibition is designed to give visitors of all ages a chance to venture into the art of comics and the makings of a bestseller, exploring the creativity of the saga artists.

A curated journey through the 22 albums enables to (re)discover the fascinating realm and quests of the hero who, at just 26 years of age, inherits a vast financial empire. Transported into a world of comics, visitors meet with the hero, his team, his friends and his enemies, and discover the extraordinary cityscapes that populate the series landscapes along the hero’s adventures, from Istanbul to Chicago, London to Hong Kong, Amsterdam to Venice. 

Created by Citéco, Europe’s first ever museum devoted to economics, the exhibition also provides a highly original insight into the mysterious workings of contemporary economy, telling a story of 30 years of economy practices, major changes and challenges that have taken place since the first album of the series was published back in 1990. Visitors can grasp the basics of economics and delve into significant global economy concepts and events, from stock market crashes and subprime crisis to large-scale corruption, through the humanist billionaire’s adventures andthe discovery of a very unique artistic creation.
