AUTHOR: Alberto Benevelli has had 80 books published, many of which have been translated into different languages and also exhibited in major Italian illustration exhibitions. He loves Christmas and he has written 11 books on this subject. He says of himself: “I write I admit, but I’m not a writer. Writers write for words, I write for pictures. When I make up a story in my mind, it comes firstly in figures and colours. Then I translate them into words. It is a very difficult process because, even if the words and the images coexist together in the book, they speak different languages.”
ILLUSTRATOR: Nicoletta Bertelle lives in Itay: In thirty years I have illustrated over 120 books, most of which are translated into many languages. I have illustrated books, posters, sets, panels, paintings, wooden objects … and I work with children in schools, museums and libraries, doing workshops and animated readings with them. Illustrating is a source of joy for me!
