Born today Walter Molino
Walter Molino (5 November 1915 – 8 December 1997) fulfilled his classical and academic education in Milan. He made his debut as an artist in the student magazine Libro e Moschetto in 1934. It was followed by two series of short-lived comic strips for the Del Duca publications L’Intrepido and Il Monello. In 1935, Molino created a series of political and satirical cartoons, published in Libro e Moschetto and in Il Popolo d’Italia. When the magazine Il Bertoldo was founded in 1936, Molino became one of its most talented contributors.
