Fumetto Card #50: JACOVITTI FOREVER!

The history of Italian comics enters the Olympus of Fumetto Cards, an absolute myth and unforgettable artist of the ninth art. The solidarity Fumetto Card #50 is dedicated to Benito Jacovitti and his most iconic and beloved character: Cocco Bill.

The solidarity card was designed by Luca Salvagno, from an idea by Silvia Jacovitti: “Cocco Pax – Ceasefire now”, for a world without wars, at most only in comics..

Benito Franco Jacovitti was born in Termoli (CB) on 9 March 1923. Subsequently he moved with his family to Florence, where he attended art school. It was in high school in Florence that he was given the nickname “Fishbone”, as he was tall and thin and he signed almost all of his paintings with a red fishbone.

In 1939 he began his collaboration with the famous children’s newspaper “Il Vittorioso” which continued until 1967. In 1946 he settled permanently in Rome, where shortly afterwards he also began the creation of the famous Diario Vitt for the A.V.E. publishing house.

Benito Jacovitti also works for Corriere dei Ragazzi, Linus, Il Giorno. L’Europeo, Cuore and many others as well as the many illustrations for advertisements.

His Pinocchio is memorable, as is Kamasultra.

Cocco Bill was born on March 28, 1957. Listing all the stories and all the characters created by Jacovitti requires an encyclopedia. The author’s favorites were Pippo, Pertica and Palla who reminded him of his schoolmates.

Luca Salvagno was Jacovitti’s assistant, taking over from him in the continuation of the Cocco Bill series, upon Benito’s death in 1997.

The initiative was made possible thanks to the availability of Silvia Jacovitti and Luca Salvagno.
