Abstract


Zanardi or about exactness. A tribute to the art of Andrea Pazienza in a mood of extreme nostalgia. Andrea Pazienza (1956-1988) was an Italian artist considered one of the most influential cartoonist of his generation and a great innovator of the European comics tradition. Prematurely dead for drug abuse, the artist created a narrative universe populated by young dropouts and animated by their strange and emotional adventures. The essay is especially dedicated to Zanardi, Andrea Pazienza’s most famous character, a sort of materialization of a new “cool” generation feature (the 80’s), following the “hot” political season of the 70’s. Behind the violent stories of Zanardi and his partners, Pazienza reveals an amazing competence to investigate the social world through his multiform graphic style and his extraordinary narrative talent
