Furizon is an Italian group and an event of the same name held annually in northern Italy since 2015. The group also handles the management of other minor events on the Italian territory.

Features[edit]

The event is characterized by the choice of a location surrounded by nature and its outdoor activities. Furizon also offers activities such as themed group games, DJ sets and culinary contests, taking advantage of a hosting structure totally self-managed.

History[edit]

The group was established in the late 2014 by Silverwolf, yet administrator of FurZone and co-administrator of Italian Fur Haven in the past, and Rigel.

The first edition of Furizon was held between April 30 - May 3, 2015. It drew 31 attendees and hosted a culinary contest named "Masterchef Furizon" - referring to the popular TV show - a film projection, a DJ set and a small artists workshop. It was also given to the attendees the possibility of being photographed in a professional-quality portrait setting.

The second edition of Furizon was named "Furizon - Hunting Season" and was held June 2-5, 2016.[1] It drew 30 attendees and for the first time a theme and related activities were given to the event. The chosen theme was a tribal setting with the mixture of totemic and spiritual elements and related lore, in which attendees who agreed to participate in the games were split into five teams. The culinary contest was replicated as a group challenge and a nocturnal outdoor game, in which it was proposed that the teams had to solve a riddle and hunt their opponents, capturing their "scalps" by reading a word put on each hunter forehead.

Casa Magnola

The first two editions of Furizon were held in Casa Magnola, a completely self managed location near Segonzano, in Trentino Alps, around the months of late April, May and early June. The location and timeslot were confirmed for the third edition.[citation needed]

The fourth event took place at the same location from 1-4 June 2018. In this year Furizon was called "Penumbra". There were at least 55 attendees, including 12 fursuiters.[2]

The fifth edition of Furizon, called "Furizon Sovereign", took place in San Valentino, TN (Hotel Sole Del Baldo), from 29 May 2019 to 2 June 2019.

Organization[edit]

In October 2018 the group decided to officially become a legal entity by funding Furizon APS, associating with the Associazione Ricreativa e Culturale Italiana (Italian Recreational and Cultural Association).[3] Attendees need to register to ARCI to participate to any event.
