Odysseus, by Massimo Fecchi

Massimo Fecchi studied to become a drawing teacher at the Art Institute of Rome. He began a collaboration with Le Pioniere dell'Unita in 1964, where he took on ' Picchio & Pacchio'. He then took courses in animation, and joined the Jet animation studios in 1965. He began drawing for the bi-monthly magazine Miao. In the late 1960s, he contributed to Kriminal and Jacula with Cambiotti and Belardinelli through the Rosi studios. He focused on humorous comics afterwards, starting in the magazine Telezecchino in 1968. He drew nearly all of the magazine's covers, and created the leading character, 'Giuseppe'.

He was an animator at Hahn Film in Berlin, and he works as an illustrator for Editrice San Paolo and Ed. Paoline. He has also drawn a comic adaptation of the cartoon 'Renada'.
