Filippo was born in Syracuse and grew up in Rome. Even when he was very young, he impressed everyone with his drawings. But that did not always make him popular, because his drawings and comics were sometimes a bit too sharp. He received from his father, an art teacher, a systematic education in classical drawing. His favorite place in Rome was the Piazza Navona, where many draftsmen and caricaturists are, from them he looked at all the important techniques. After graduation and military service, he made the decision to complete his studies in Germany. In Frankfurt he studied communication and design, and here too his ability was useful. After completing his studies, Filippo worked in advertising and many pictures of Ferrero stickers and other products came from his pen. But he never gave up appearing in public, at fairs and events. It is important for him to not lose contact with the people and he enjoys drawing under the attentive gaze of the people. For 27 years, Filippo has been working as a speed-cartoonist and caricature artist for national and international companies. Like all passionate artists, Filippo never stops developing and breaking new ground.
