Seventy years later, Sergio Bonelli Editore with COMICON and ARF! Festivals, celebrate the ranger by bringing to Rome the great exhibition entitled TEX. 70 YEARS OF A MYTH open from May 24th to July 14th 2019 at the MATTATOIO.

Festival, the exhibition will tell - even through the historical pages of the RCS themes - how Tex succeeded, from 1948 until today, in an entrance to a distant part of the reading habits of the Italians, conquering different ones, thanks to his deep sense of justice and to the his innate generosity, becoming a true phenomenon of custom.
