Since 1988, Ferioli has worked exclusively for the Danish publisher Egmont, initially through Studio Bonnet (1988-1998) and later directly. Ferioli is largely responsible for the artwork of the modernized 'Mickey Mouse' stories, in which the know-it-all detective of the 1970s and 1980s returned to his roots by wearing his typical short trousers and becoming more dynamic. Among his best known works is the 2003 Duck/Mouse crossover serial 'Mythos Island', written by Per Erik Hedman and Pat and Carol McGreal. When Egmont cut down its production in 2010, Ferioli resumed his collaboration with VNU (now Sanoma) in The Netherlands. There he also introduced a return to classic Mickey Mouse stories, together with writer/editor Jos Beekman.
