Letter from Italy

For this new issue of “Letter from” column, we asked toonpool.com artist Cristina Bernazzani about her life and begged for some photographs of her working place and the city she lives in, Robbiate, Italy. Cristina lives in a beautiful village, the perfect place for children to grow “into the wild”, but find out more from the following letter.

The Adda river nearby

01. Which movie/tv character you see yourself as and why?
There is a TV show, “Scrubs”, where the protagonist tends to imagine unreal situations to distract himself from reality. Sometimes I distract my attention from reality like that.


02. What was your New Year’s resolution?
I’m on a course for a new total different work..I hope to be promoted!

03. What bores you the most?
Listening to stupid politicians it’s what bores me the most. Berlusconi was the worst of all. But there are more… Monti and company aren’t different.

04. Do you like your place or would you like to live somewhere else?
I live in a small village in the countryside, a perfect place for children to grow “into the wild”, but I personally hope to move to a place just in front of the sea, somewhere, someday.


05. What are you able to do that Superman can’t do?
Superman can’t give people the intelligence to make this world the paradise that could be.

06. If you were sleep walking one night, where would you probably wake up the next day?
On a train…

07. What would you wear to be kicked out from a black tie cocktail party
No idea..perhaps a black sensual dress with tennis shoes

08. Tell me the biggest prank you did on a friend.
Usually the victim…is me! Maybe because I’m too ingenuous!


09. How to ruin your vacation?
Vacation…what does vacation mean?


10. If I gave you a giraffe, where would you hide it?
I would hide it among other giraffes.

11. What do you do when you see the glass half empty!
I go in front of the mirror and give a speech for the half full part!
