Escape Room across Lecco “Marella’s Job”

In spring 1945, the Second World War was nearing its end. For Italy, the war ended in the north, on Lake Como. As the front drew closer, the people of Lecco became uncertain about their future.

The city of Lecco possessed few treasures. The most important was the original manuscripts of the famous writer Alessandro Manzoni. The city council decided to hide these works from the approaching troops.

It was agreed that they should be hidden by the most honourable person in town. The choice fell on a young fisherman named Mario Marella.

Mario Marella accepted the job and hid the manuscripts well. Unfortunately, he died in a storm a year later. The original scripts have not been found since. Yet Mario must have left some clues to find them.

Sato Code

Sato Code is the escape room across the city, that can be played in many cities in Italy such as Bergamo, Como, Varese, Lecco, Brescia, Pavia and Padova and in Switzerland: Lugano, Locarno, Bellinzona, Zürich , Zug and Bremgarten – and more to come soon.

Our escape game is the evolution of the classical escape room. Based on characteristic elements of indoors escape rooms, as riddles and puzzles, but enhancing the game with features of a treasure hunt, city escape and geocaching. Peering around every street corner for clues, you’ll feel like you’re in a movie!

Every player needs a smartphone or tablet and will receive bits of different and complementary information – a multiplayer game.  Our escape room across the city can be played at any time without reservation, being self-guided. However, this is not just a digital escape game, but a real-life game!

Sato Code is great to be played among friends or family, or even just as a couple. Are you visiting a city? Then enjoy Sato Code as a very special walking tour. But our escape room game is also ideal for more than 10 people – even up to 50. So birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette parties or team-building events are perfect occasions too to play the best escape game out there.
