Andrea Pazienza, thirty years gone

"He was the founder of a great school that had no favourite pupils as it was inimitable, a unique talent" (Roberto Benigni)

30 years after his tragic death at the young age of 32 (in Montepulciano on June 16, 1988), ARF! Festivals and Comicon present an intense exhibition of original works that celebrates the most eclectic and brilliant Italian author of all time and that, finally, brings his artistic heritage together in one place, thanks to the invaluable collaboration of his whole family.

A great anthology: from Aficionados and Le straordinarie avventure di Pentothal from the early 80s, to his most famous character, Zanardi, through Tormenta and the Disney caricatures of Perché Pippo sembra uno sballato and La leggenda of Italianino Liberatore, the funny Pertini. In addition to comic storytelling, including short spells as “Paz” cartoonist and illustrator, we include rarities found among the folders of his immense artistic archive.
