Giuliano Piccininno studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Napels. He co-launched the Trumoon magazine in 1982, along with among others Bruno Brindisi and Roberto De Angelis. His professional career started two years later, when he took on the 'Alan Ford' series, which he drew until 1987. He joined Gianni Bono's Epierre agency, for which he took on comics like 'Masters of the Universe', 'Magic Boy' and stories for Disney. For Della Monica, he illustrated such titles as 'Texasrangers' for Only West Baby. He did comics with cartoon characters for Il Corrierino (the former Corriere dei Piccoli), such as the 'Ninja Turtles' and several Looney Toons characters. Piccininno then did several jobs for L'Intrepido ('Il Grande Raffreddore'), Nero ('Nero Lacinoco') and Comic Art Humor ('Tromba dell'Amore'). Since the mid-1990s, he did comics for Tornado Press, like 'Trash' and 'Rave'. For Bonelli, he illustrated such features as 'Dampyr'.
