Milo Manara’s illustrations

Milo Manara is one of the comics illustrators that succeeds to have a reputation of a genuine artist. He is inspired by the classical art and painting and by the Renaissance’s most famous artist in the world, Raphael. Milo was attracted by art since he was a kid: he run away from home just to participate at an exhibition of art. Born in Luson (Bolzano), Maurilio Manaro begin in a sculpture studio to earn his living and only in the late sixities he found out that comics is a



better way for him to express his personality. His first work appeared in the ‘Genius’ pocket books by publisher Furio Vanio in 1969, and in magazines like Terror, Telerompo, and the French magazines Alter-Linus and Charlie Mensuel. He tried everything: sketches and drawings, comics and even illustrations for children’s magazine Corriere dei Ragazzi. Then he illustrated for Larousse five episodes about the history of France. Of course, in comics. :) This project made him famous in the educational collections, so he worked on others like: “La Découverte du Monde en Bandes Dessinées” (Larousse, 1979), “L’Histoire de la Chines” (1980) and “La Storia d’Italia a Fumetti” (Mondadori, 1978).
