Emanuele Taglietti – artist

(n. 74, settembre 1980)

Emanuele Taglietti (born in Ferrara, January 6, 1943) is an Italian designer, illustrator and painter.

Born to an artistic father, Emanuele Taglietti graduated from his local art institute, then moved to Rome where he studied set design at the Experimental Center of Cinematography. He worked on the art direction and set decoration for various films, including Federico Fellini’s Juliet of the Spirits

In 1973, he returned to live in his home town and came into contact with Renzo Barbieri of Edifumetto, for whom he worked as a cover artist of erotic, crime, fantasy and horror-themed fumetti (Italian comic books). Having been inspired by artists such as Frank Frazetta and Averardo Ciriello, he created artwork for fumetti such as Zora the vampire, Belzeba, Cimiteria, Sukia, Stregoneria (“Witchcraft”), Gli Spettri (“The Spectres”), Il Sanguinari (“The Blood”), Lo Schelectro (“The Skeleton”), Ulula (“Howls”), Vampirissimo and Wallestein.

Occasionally, Taglietti reworked images and artwork from horror films such as Creature from the Black LagoonNight of the Demon (1957) and The Plague of the Zombies, and seems to have had a fixation on actress Ornella Muti (whom he based the image of Sukia on). Featuring the signature nudity of fumetti, his work was sometimes censored when the comic books were publish in other countries, like Spain.

During this busy period, which continued until 1988, Taglietti also restored old paintings and occasionally collaborated as an illustrator for magazine publishers such as Mondadori and Rizzoli. He retired in 2000, broadened the scope of his artistic interests, devoting himself to mural decoration and furniture.

  1. Ciao Emanuele, Have removed Quasimodo! We obviously didn’t realise this wasn’t one of your covers. Meanwhile, we’d love to have posted lots more of your wonderful artwork but some of it’s a bit too rude in these politically correct times. You should petition Taschen to print a huge volume of your fumetti masterpieces? Adrian

    • thank you for the correct page. Someone is already thinking about a book about my work, but it is not Taschen. It would have been very nice, because it is the publishing house with more points of sale worldwide. Who knows maybe one day …… decide to do so.
      regards
      Emanuele

  2. hello, I’m Emanuele Taglietti. Very nice site you have created for my work. I wanted to point out that the ‘ultimate cover of “Cimiteria” titled “The Betrayal of Quasimodo” is not mine. I would be pleased if you can pull it off. Thank you in advance, Emanuele
