Roi Pistache, by Franco Aloisi

Franco Aloisi is best known as one of Italy's most important artists of paintings and serigraphs. When he was very young, he asserted himself as an author of comic strips, which were printed in Italian, European, and South American periodicals. Starting in the early 1950s, Aloisi contributed to magazines like Lo Scolaro, Calandrino and La Domenica del Corriere. Through Bottaro's studios, the Milanese artist created several characters for the publishing house Alpe, including 'Pietro e Genio', the monkeys 'Trik e Trak', the gorilla 'Napoleon', 'Re Pistacchio', 'Nicolino & Carmelino' and 'L'Incredible Ernesto'. Aloisi eventually abandoned the comics field to work in the theatre and television field.
