On the eve of Father’s Day, the historic Meccano construction system is the protagonist of a special area dedicated to children and parents in the Model Expo Italy modeling fair in Verona. Young and old will have fun building together models with nuts, screws and metal bars in a real Meccano laboratory of over 40 square meters, flanked by an exhibition area where you can admire some special constructions.
Besides some historical models created by the builders of GAMM – Meccano modeling amateurs group, including a beautiful pendulum clock and a seaplane, visitors can admire a contemporary work of the highest value: a reproduction of a Ducati Monster 1200S built entirely with celebrated bars of Meccano, the result of collaboration between the two iconic brands.
Invented more than 100 years ago by Frank Hornby, Meccano has taught several generations of children to build and rebuild their toy, combining a mechanism that is maintained over time with a strong propensity for the future, with an evolution that integrates into the new models the most advanced technologies. Precisely because of its intergenerational history that brings together grandparents, fathers and children of the New Millennium, Meccano is the perfect toy to celebrate together the Father’s Day sharing in the family the passion for the art of construction.
