Apart from a few publications of French artist groups like "Le Dernier Cri" who really love provocation, Italian comic books or "Fumetti", are the ones to stand out in Europe through their most liberal and artistic approach. Ther are of course Italian kid’s comics and erotic art books (Fumetti per Adulti) as well as a number of native Italian action comics like "Diabolik", "Dylan Dog", "Nathan Never" and "Ranxerox". Still it is the special style of a few popular illustrators that really makes Italian comics different. Similar to their franco-belgian neighbours, artist like Hugo Pratt (Corto Maltese) and Milo Manara (Giuseppe Bergmann) have developed their own personal agenda very early on and are now highly appreciated due to their work’s literary value. In the 80s comic creators like Lorenzo Mattotti and Igort triggered profound changes in Italy's comics scene. Hamburg’s Istituto Italiano di Cultura features an exhibition „Graphicnovel.it“ that shows important developments of Italian "graphic literature" over the last 30 years. 15 internationally renouned artist are on display: Lorenzo Mattotti, Igort, Gipi, Stefano Ricci, Sara Colaone, Manuele Fior, Gabriella Giandelli, Vittorio Giardino, Leila Marzocchi, Davide Toffolo, Davide Reviati, Giacomo Nanni, Piero Macola, Francesco Cattani and Alessandro Tota.
