Although passionate of drawing since early childhood, Stefano Disegni initially worked as a manager for Agip motels. He eventually left his job, and went into publishing, starting with his book 'Radio Rabbia Alternativa' in 1979. Shortly afterwards, he also contributed to satirical publications like Satyricon, Il Manifesto, Paese Sera and Il Corriere della Sera. He filled joke books and together with humorist Massimo Caviglia, he went to work for Cuore magazine and created series like 'Franco II e Franco III' and 'Esercizi di Stile', published by Feltrinelli and Comix. During the same period, he began to work for television, contributing to programs like Lo Scrondo, Matrioska and Lupo Solitario. In 1997, he collected his cinema parodies in the book 'Cinema! Tu m'hai provocato e io te Disegno'. Disegni has also written (children's) books without drawings, such as '12 Atti Impuri', 'La Coscienza di Zen', 'Maga Jole la Sfasciaparole', 'Sì, ma dov'è Biancaneve?' and 'Pollicione'.
