Enrico Nanni

I graduated in 2012 at the A. Serpieri artistic high school in Viserba (RN), attending the painting course.

Afterwards, I studied at the "Scuola del Libro" of Urbino in the "Perfezionamento di Disegno Animato" (Advanced course of Animated Drawing and Comics) course. During these two years I have approached the world of storytelling through images.

In 2014 I participated in the creation of an illustrated and self-produced fanzine entitled GAP. The theme of the magazine was La Marea. I collaborated with other illustrators and cartoonists in the creation and publication of the volume that we then presented at the Fruit self-production festival in Bologna in the same year.

In February 2016 I was selected for an illustration competition promoted by "Printbee" with two illustrations relating to the "positive & negative" theme, of which a catalog was created with the illustrations of the selected participants.

Also in the same year I had the opportunity to set up a personal exhibition at "Bruno Bernardi antiques".

The exhibition was curated by Stefano Lombardelli and Anna Maria del Bianco and is part of the off circuit of the second edition of the biennial drawing of Rimini.

Subsequently, I was invited to exhibit my project entitled Lie black at the Rosaspina theater in Montescudo, during the contemporary theater season organized by the association "l'Attoscuro" in 2017.

I collaborated in the making of the documentary: La strada dei Samouni directed by Stefano Savona, released in 2018 and winner of the Oeil d'Or Jury Prize for best documentary. The film consists of a part made in animation with the rotogravure technique and, under the supervision and following the style of the animator from Marche Simone Massi, I was able to give my contribution to the animated part of this feature film.

From April to December 2017 I participated in the advanced training course in documentary and experimental cinema held in Parma, promoted by the region Emilia Romagna and the Bologna Film Library. The aim of the course, after a first theoretical part on the language of the documentary, was to create one in a team. I chose to follow and tell the life of Mario Lanfranchi, a director from Parma.

I am still attending the second year of the Etching course at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.
