Meet Altan: Behind Italy’s Greatest Cartoons

Francesco Tullio Altan

Francesco Tullio Altan

Known mostly for his satirical take on political issues worldwide, cartoonist and illustrator Francesco Tullio Altan will be offering a family-friendly workshop of his creations such as Kika, Pimpa and Cipputi. In collaboration with the Institute of Italian Culture and the Italian School in London, children will be able to enjoy talks with the creator of the polka-dotted dog and learn how to draw, as well.

This fun workshop will allow children to draw characters under the supervision and guidance of this worldwide recognised cartoonist. Getting children involved with Altan’s work at an early age will also set them up for liking his work as they become responsible adults in the future who will be guaranteed a satirical laugh at Italy’s biggest problems through his adult-oriented cartoons.
