The illustrated imagery of Marco Milanesi in the days of the Coronavirus
The second author's drawing of The illustrations of firenzemadeintuscany.com
Marco Milanesi, born in 1960, is an illustrator and cartoonist from Prato. He drew and sketched since childhood, with a particular preference for white walls that he filled with improbable drawings.
We find the same immaculate background in the illustration he made for us at Firenze Made in Tuscany, which tells of these strange days, where conviviality, in some way, does not fail.
He has never made specific artistic studies, but he has acquired a style of his own. Fresh, both in the stroke and in the use of color, when he decides that his works will be married there.
He has recently illustrated some books. For the author Sara Passi Tonino and her star and Una magia bella e buona. Then it was the turn of Two incredible Christmas stories, by the writer Loredana Limone. Finally the meeting with one of the greatest experts in jewellery, the Italian-American Patrizia Di Carrobio for whom she illustrated the book Una vita a gioiello.
In addition to pencils and sheets of paper, he feeds on jazz and has drawn a lot around this musical universe, for him, a true vital universe. So much so that in 2017 he exhibited 26 drawings on Jazz as part of the Jazz festival at the Metastasio Theatre in Prato. And for some years now he has been making posters for the ancient music festival organized by the girls of the Mesotonica association, while last year he collaborated with the orchestra of the Camerata Strumentale city of Prato.
