Among his early works are the comics 'Lo Stregone Bianco' and 'Il Fantasma di Land-Town' for Yoga Club (1955-1957), a promotional magazine for Yoga fruit juices. In the 1960s, he illustrated stories and articles for the Catholic magazines Vera Vita and Voci d'Oltremare. He was present in Il Vittorioso as a designer of headers and an illustrator for comic serials during the 1970s, and he made illustrations as well as the sci-fi feature 'Ulix' (with A.
