How to Get to Know Martina Finocchio
Martina Finocchio, the beautiful, diminutive heroine of the La Trattoria cartoon strip was born in Tuscany. Her name was inspired by the character of the same name who appears in the comic. She is a creator of many different patterns and shapes, from the graceful to the exotic. Her clothing line has sold out at several occasions, making her one of the most famous fashion designers in Italy.
Martina Finocchio was a student of decorated handwriting of Giorgio Vasarelli. The influence of this renowned designer can be seen in her style of sketching and lettering. She studied with him until she received her diploma in painting. After that she joined the firm of Vittoria, where she trained until she became one of their best designers.
One of her trademarks is her use of small items to create beautiful works of art. For example, in the cartoon strip she illustrated, she repeatedly drew hearts to show her feelings for Mario. This helped her to receive many awards for the art she had created. All of her drawings were done in water colours.
