Francesco Fidani

I currently works as graphic designer and illustrator in Rome. After 4 years, studying and working as product designer between Italy Germany and Spain, I decided to move my focus on illustration field starting a master degree at ISIA Urbino.
During those years I developed a strong aptitude for fine art print techniques and the research on local cultures and cities, aimed at communicate the identity of territory.
On 2017, I started the project Tothem Tour, which aimed to bring the cutting and printing technique outside the studio with public performances and workshops in the main Italian cities.
My work range includes from editorial illustration to animation and live painting.
Further the visual arts I cultivate great interest for theatre and acting.
