Grazia Nidasio was a central figure in the world of illustration and Italian comics. From the mid-fifties and for over half a century, she contributed with her very personal style to the creation of covers and illustrated books; she worked in advertising and animation and, above all, she collaborated as an editor and cartoonist with magazines and newspapers (“Corriere dei Piccoli”, “Corriere dei Ragazzi”). Unforgettable characters have come to life from her pen, such as Alibella, Violante Rock, Dott. Oss, Valentina Mela Verde or La Stefi. She died on December 24, 2018, in Certosa di Pavia, where she had lived for a long time.
