ehilà! This is our Sergio Tofano!
Thanks Roberto. We were in contact with his son Gilberto when doing this book. I should write to him to see if he will do a "guest feature" on Tofano for my blog. I would love to see *a lot* more work (in high resolution) by him.
Great, I can send you some scansiones from my Tofano's book , if you want...I love Tofano|Time ago I was invited to partecipate to realisation of this antology about him.http://www.orecchioacerbo.com/editore/index.php?option=com_oa&vista=catalogo&id=74&Itemid=68

this blog is MAGNIFIQUE - unended inspiration ! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART :*
The highest literary award in Italy is the "Witch" prize - interesting.Bontempelli - almost sounds like "let the good times roll"My 9 year old daughter is learning chess and italian so this will be perfect reading for her.
Just to clarify, the "Witch" prize, established in 1947, is actually named after the Strega liquor company which has always sponsored it. The liquor is produced in Benevento, a legendary witches' stronghold, from a secret recipe mixing about 70 different herbs and spices, hence the name...
BTW, I love Sergio Tofano too! As a child, I used to have a huge book collecting all old the "Signor Bonaventura" stories -unfortunately long gone.
This blog is just delicious. many thanks & much love, all the way from Abu DhabiXO
"Cornebuse et cie by Guy Sabran" - Amazing! Thank you for finding these.
Commented on the wrong post! Had meant to mention that the theme of chess and mirrors is very similar to Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass." Designer Reilly Stroope and I just released a shirt inspired by that book last Wednesday.
