About this Art
Sergio Toppi is an Italian-born artist whose work debuted with renowned Italian publisher UTET, before moving on to work with advertising campaigns, as well as with the finest European titles.
Sergio Toppi was a remarkable Milanese comic artist and illustrator. He began his career making illustrations for the collection 'Enciclopedia dei Ragazzi' by the publishing firm UTET, as well as a series of animated advertising films. He made his first comics for Il Corriere dei Piccoli from 1966. These included 'Il Mago Zurlì' (script by Carlo Triberti), a comics biography of Pietro Micca and several historical and war stories in the series 'Grandi Avventure di Pace e di Guerra', in cooperation with the writer Milo Milani.
When Il Corriere dei Piccoli became Il Corriere dei Ragazzi in 1972, Toppi illustrated series like 'Dal Nostro Inviato', 'Fumetti-Verità', 'Uomini Contro' and 'I Grandi nel Giallo'. Toppi and Milano also produced several historical comics for Il Messaggero dei Ragazzi between 1977 and 1979. By then, Toppi was additionally pursuing a versatile career in the field of illustration, that also left its mark on his approach of comic stories.
