Eugenio Saint Pierre di Nieubourg is the full byline. He’s been a dear friend of our family for as long as we can remember and happens to be one of Italy’s finest humorists, illustrators and advertising designers, with a lightness of touch inversely proportional to the ponderous-sounding name. (He typically makes fun of himself on his web site, with his signature little cartoon fellows burdened under its weight.)
Now, from a debut date of July 31, the major national daily, Corriere della Sera, and the northeastern Italian paper Il Gazzettino will feature our friend’s unmistakable strips on the subject of… Bellini.
We thought Saint Pierre’s sparkle and color would resonate with Bellini’s own – and sneak peeks of his fun designs have proven us right. Once a month, in the press and social media, Eugenio and Bellini will relieve the grayness of the moment and have us all see la vie en rose. With a smile.
