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.

Winner of ‘Strike! 2018’ Contest

I am one of the winners of the contest for stories that make the difference ‘Strike 2018’ – whose final I took part into yesterday! WhatsApp Image 2018-11-11 at 18.34.22

It’s been an amazing experience, for so many reasons it’s hard to squeeze them up in a single post without being prolix. Suffices to say I got the chance to reflect on myself, on my personal story – how I became a cartoonist – confronting it with 9 other incredible stories, told by excellent and energetic storytellers. Everyone was amazing – the organization, the participants, the public – and I’ve got the sensation this contest will live a long and exciting life!

Here’s the video of the awards ceremony!
