Un Sedicesimo 21

The new issue of Un Sedicesimo is an incursion into the 19th century gloomy atmosphere of Edgar Allan Poe's short story: "The Murders in the Rue Morgue". Over the 16 pages, Gianluigi Toccafondo gives us his version of one of the great crime writer's most famous tales, published for the first time in 1841. A macabre double crime takes place in a Parisian apartment. Ferocious and unexplainable, it can only be solved by brilliant detective, Auguste Dupin.

The lugubrious details of the story are transferred to an unprecedented black and white issue of Un Sedicesimo. The pages are crowded with quick ink strokes, differing shades of tempera and daubs of colour, to recreate in dark and urgent images the murky atmosphere of the tale. In the typical style of Un Sedicesimo, Gianluigi Toccafondo's issue experiments for the first time with the narration of a story, illustrating it with his own original drawings.

Gianluigi Toccafondo was born in San Marino in 1965. He studied at Urbino Istituto d’Arte and lives in Bologna. In 1989 he began his career making short animated films, title sequences for TV programmes and animated logos for the cinema and advertizing, book covers and ilustrated books. In 2007 he was assistant director to Matteo Garrone on the film “Gomorra”. In 2010 he created the title animation for Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood”.
