“Primo de li miei amici”,, from storyboard to page! Let's take a closer look at the process of creating a comic!

After showing you some previews of the three volumes of the Dante trilogy created by the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and the Kleiner Flug publishing house, today we go into detail and see how a comic is created!

In particular, we are talking about the first book of the triptych, “Primo de li miei amici”,, which will see the texts of the couple who baptized the previous Dante publication of the publishing house, the biography "Dante Alighieri, Amor mi mosse": Alessio D'Uva and Filippo Rossi, while at the drawings we will find Angelica Regni, author of “Enrico IV” for Kleiner Flug.

Here you can see the first 5 pages of the storyboard achieved by Filippo Rossi, where a sweaty Dante wakes up at the end of a convulsive dream to write the rhymes of “A ciascun’alma presa e gentil core”, in comparison with the definitive pages of Angelica Kingdoms.

What is a storyboard? are a set of sequential drawings to tell a story, where the author (in this case Filippo Rossi) tests by placing cartoons and dialogues in a certain order, to understand if the rhythm of the story works or not. If the storyboard is effective, at that point we move on to the designer who transforms it "into a fair copy”.

What do you think? “Primo de li miei amici”, will focus on the friendship between Dante and Guido Cavalcanti and will deal in visual form with the many literary nuances of the sweet Stil Novo of the origins.
