Illustratore Italiano is the first national magazine dedicated to the design and Italian designers. The spontaneous project started in 2014 with a Facebook page created by the illustrator Maria La Duke. The goal was to gather news and updates of the illustration world. The digital space, in a few months, engaged hundreds of users in a real community. With her brother Filippo, she came up with idea of giving life to a magazine. Illustratore Italiano gets inspiration from the great illustration periodicals of the past – from “L’Illustrazione Italiana” to “La Domenica del Corriere”, from “Corto Maltese” to “Linus” – but with a contemporary key.
