Paperino, by Giulio Chierchini

Giulio Chierchini studied at the Duccio di Buoninsegna Art Institute in Siena, and began his career working as an animator in 1946. He cooperated on among others the short cartoon animation, 'Volpino e la Papera Ribelle'. In 1952, he turned to comics, starting with creations for the publishers Alpe ('Castorino', 'Tik Corvo', 'Dan Lepre') and Bianconi ('Volpetto', 'Mao & Okey', 'Nonna Abelarda'). He teamed up with Giovan Battista Carpi (with whom he also illustrated 'Nonna Abelarda') and joined the Italian production of Disney comics at the publishing house Mondadori in 1953. He was Carpi's inker for a couple of years, before he began pencilling himself.  He took on scriptwriting in 1964.
