The art of making balloons

A guided tour of the exhibition designed to look closely at Hugo Pratt’s art, paying special attention to his role as a comic strip artist, and more generally on the art of the comic strip. The guide will tell the pupils/students the stories that inspired Hugo Pratt, and then take them to the workshop: here each pupil will be given a sheet of paper on which the first panel has been drawn in the style of Hugo Pratt’s plates, whereas all the others, including the speech balloons, will be blank: each pupil will create their own story, just like a real cartoonist.
