In occasione di alcuni eventi chiediamo a tutti di venire vestiti in abiti fantasy. Questo per potersi calare ancor meglio nell’atmosfera della festa!

Per questo evento il costume da mezzuomo/donna è obbligatorio!

Al momento non offriamo un servizio di noleggio o vendita costumi, ma mettere insieme un costume da vero abitante della contea è molto semplice.

Per gli uomini: camicia (magari bianca), pantaloncini o pantaloni arrotolati ad altezza ginocchio, scarpe comode o sandali.

Per le donne: abito lungo o gonna, bustino, scarpe comode o sandali.

Da qui potete dare sfogo alla fantasia con bretelle, coroncine, orecchie a punta, mantelli, piedoni, panciotti, pipa, bastone da passeggio…

Ecco alcuni esempi e spunti:


In the book and in the film, the most famous halfling in the shire finds himself having to sign a burglar's contract drawn up by the Dwarves with a thousand footnotes and paragraphs. You can find the reproduction of this contract, in English, everywhere, but this one you see was hand-written by one of the loyal "citizens" of our project, in Italian and with references to the Journey that the contea Gentile is undertaking: the Construction and the Birth of a place out of the ordinary!

This document can be filled in with the type of trade or service you can offer for the creation of the contea Gentile!

Handmade paper, custom font, pages cut out and sewn by hand with string and sealed with hot wax.

Minted in 2022, it depicts the symbol of the shire on one side, the Acorn. While on the other side the face of the nicest mayor there is, Nicolas Gentile. This coin was created by one of the loyal "citizens" of the county project, to support and grow it.

Attention: obviously this currency has no legal value in Italy or other countries (perhaps only in imaginary ones). This is a gadget/souvenir from La contea Gentile. Certainly more emotionally valuable than other currencies in circulation in the world!


Always carry the Official Passport of LA CONTEA GENTILE with you! This is the most excellent identification document: every self-respecting resident of La contea Gentile, presumed or current never leaves home without it! This passport was created by one of the loyal "citizens" of the shire project, in support and growth of it.

Fill it out with the information, characteristics and details that distinguish you: gender, species, class, hair, eyes, build, particular brands and much more!

This document is not necessarily widely or legally recognized by friendly or hostile, neighbours or distant, real or imaginary states.
