Some star-spangled illustrations I've drawn over the years. Happy 4th!
Two illustrations made for Abracadabra Limited Collection by Compagnia dei Caraibi, Italian company specialized in the import and distribution of spirits and soft drinks. These works reflect the themes of Culture and Social & Gender Equality, which along with Environment and People are the key areas where the company concentrates its efforts in order to make the difference and bring about a change in the world we live in.
Thanks to the team of Graphic Days® who coordinated the project!
The collection is part of the “Abracadabra” project launched by Graphic Days®, which consists in 60 works donated by internationally renowned illustrators whose proceeds will be donated to the project "Give a tree" with the aim of planting new trees in the city od Torino, Italy.

Illustration for bookshop Viaggeria, based in Trento, Italy. It represents the most iconic landmarks of the city, which rises at the foot of the Italian Alps. It's been silk-screen printed in five colors on tote bags by Frammenti.
I've been asked by Italian publishing group QN Quotidiano Nazionale to create a couple of poster illustrations and logotypes celebrating the iconic landmarks of Milan and Bologna. The posters have been released by the local newspapers Il Giorno and Il Resto del Carlino on December 7 and 8, 2022.
The logos merge the traditional foods with the most popular monuments of the two cities: Panettone and Cathedral (Duomo) for Milan; Tortellino and Two Towers for Bologna.
Some illustrations made for The Voyager Scholarship, a project created by Airbnb and the Obama Foundation with the aim of shaping the next generation of public service leaders: it gives college students financial aid, meaningful travel experiences and a network of mentors to support them.

Illustration for Scaglie, the magazine of Parmigiano Reggiano, celebrating Emilia-Romagna and its less known relationship with the world of fashion. A new generation of designers like Federico Cina, Marco Rambaldi and Luca Magliano considers our territory as an essential source of inspiration to develop their unique stylistic language. As a son of this region, I’m very proud of having illustrated this piece. AD by LUZ.
Pirelli from A to Z. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Pirelli, the company magazine "World" asked writers, designers and illustrators to describe with a letter of the alphabet the values that guided Pirelli over the time. I illustrated the letter L for "Lifestyle" since Pirelli has always been identified with a style, an elegance, a way of interpreting the times that goes far beyond the tyre manufacturing - it produced raincoats and swimsuits among other things. I also tried to portray the continuity between the city of Milan today, a leading, dynamic global center, and the city at the time of Pirelli's foundation in 1872.
