“Let There Be Light”

“Let There Be Light”: On 6 November the café bookshop La Pecora Elettrica, in Centocelle (Rome) has been put on fire for the second time. This criminal attacks to a place of cultural gathering can’t be tolerated. Culture is everything, without knowledge and the sharing of it we are nothing.

2nd prize at Inktspotprijs 2019!

Yesterday evening I had the honor to win the second prize at the Inktspotprijs 2019, the Dutch award for the best political cartoon of the year, with my cartoon “Man of God, Law of Men”

I’m really happy! NRC, one of the main Dutch newspaper, flattered me describing me as “relatively unknown Italian,” which is quite a fact, journalistically speaking.

Good news is I think yesterday I shook enough hands to be less unknown – although not less Italian, I’m afraid.

“Hands in Pockets”

Yesterday the Week for Climate started with a big strike in 4500 location across 150 countries.

Soon it’s going to be too late to act on global warming and stop climate change. We can’t wait any longer.
