EXHIBITION OF ITALIAN COMIC BOOKS

The Italian Institute of Culture in Dublin devoted tonight’s event to an Exhibition of Italian Comic Books. After more than one century from their birth, comic books are still one of the most popular narrative languages in the world. They unite drawing and literature, image and communication.
In Italy, comic books and newspapers have enchanted different generations, with diverse education and social background.
The exhibition shows many original drawings of the Italian comics production by either comic masters from the ‘30s until today (like Aurelio Galleppini, Carlo Cossio, Antonio Terenghi, Gian Battista Carpi…) and by authors who are nowadays known at a global level (as Hugo Pratt, Milo Manara, Guido Crepax, Dino Battaglia…).
On the opening night the Institute hosted Maurizio Scudiero and Davide Sandrini, the curator and the organiser of this exhibition.
