Where? Consonno, The abbandoned town on the como lake (north Italy)

Consonno used to be an adult’s Wonderland. Today it is a ghost town. In the early 60’s, entrepreneur Count Mario Bagno decided to create the Las Vegas of Italy in Consonno. He built a minaret, a Chinese pagoda, a medieval castle, a dance hall, a motel and many other luxurious recreation centers designed to cater to the Lombard bourgeoisie.

A landslide struck just a few years after this entertainment city was inaugurated effectively shutting it down for good. The project failed. The bizarre, decadent buildings, as well as signs such as “Consonno is the smallest and most beautiful country in the world” and “Consonno is always a party” still remain. But Consonno isn’t only a ghost town and the objective of Nascondino World Championships is to draw out the hidden features of the ghost town. The playing field itself is a beautiful, sprawling 65,000m2 terraced valley that overlooks the surrounding plains

Street food & craft beer

In addition to the playing area, there will be an area dedicated entirely to food and beer.

“L’Imboscata” is home to a selection of the best craft breweries in Italy.

Specialty food trucks have been carefully selected to guarantee participants and spectators the highest quality food and drink.

All participating teams will be able to camp in the camping area (it is included in the registration fee) which will be furnished with toilets and free electricity. Parking space for campers will also be provided.
Spectators and staff who would like to stay overnight in the area will be offered a special price at one of the hotels or B&B’s partnered with Nascondino World Championship. For more information please write to

Rules and instructions

80 teams made up of 5 players will be divided into 4 rounds. There is 1 team of neutral seekers. Every team will be given an official uniform. The color of the uniform will be determined by the ancient practice of “Launch of the Bank Card”. Hide And Seek World Championship is played in rounds. Players are given 60 seconds to find a hiding place and must then reach home base (a large soft mattress) before the seeker and within the time limit.
The first to reach home base successfully is awarded 20 points. The second is awarded 19 and so forth.  Players eliminated by a seeker will not receive any points.  Players found cheating and players who don’t reach home base before the siren marks the end of the round will receive zero points.  Team points are tallied based on points of individual team members. The 20 teams with the most points will advance to the Finals, which will determine the winning team. The winning team will be awarded The 2018 Golden Fig Leaf.
