Simone Massi, resistant drawer and animator
Simone Massi is considered one of the greatest animators at international level today. Born in 1970, he draws exclusively by hand with an original technique of oil pastels spread on paper and then scratched with drypoint and other engraving tools, where dark black and white are the predominant colours and weave a fluid and contemplative movement. His animation is pure poetry with which he narrates a world made of clouds and hands, lyricism and resistance, love of nature and the memory of rural civilisation. 
With more than 800 awards won at major national and foreign festivals to his name, including a David di Donatello and four Nastri d'Argento, his films are considered to be some the most important in contemporary animation, so much so that in 2012, the Venice Film Festival asked him to create the festival's theme tune and posters until 2016. Cartoon Club dedicates an exhibition to him that spans his entire production with images from short films, illustrations, posters, and the animated feature 'Invelle', winner of the Carlo Lizzani Prize in the Orizzonti section at the 80th Venice International Film Festival (2023).
