Carlo has always been passionate about drawing: this is why, after his graduation in architecture at Politecnico of Milan, he chose to deepen his art and design studies. After collaborating with Bruno Munari, he started a career as editorial and advertising illustrator, working with major italian magazines and newspapers and with international clients such as La Repubblica, L’Espresso, Il Sole 24ore, Lufthansa, Illy, Bompiani, Rizzoli, Wall Street Journal and with Moleskine, with whom he created the series of books “I am Milan”, “I am London” and “I am New York”.

His distinctive style features rich, both colorful and black and white, and nearly dreamy landscapes, views on cities and everyday happenings. It’s amazing how his double-sided soul is visibile in his art: while the Illustrator tells stories about the people and their lives through public spaces, homes and buildings, the Architect notes and sketches an incredible amout of details, moldings, structures, ornaments of these places—the effect is vivid, almost-moving and unique.
