Alessandro Montagnana lives in Trieste, in Italy.

He loves nature, walking in the woods and on the sea shore, and since his early adolescence he has cultivated his passion for drawing, painting and poetry.

While graduating in naval engineering, he developed a desire to devote himself also to children’s literature, as author and freelance illustrator. It has always been his dream to write and illustrate books for children.

At the moment he is developing several projects, and he is collaborating with the publishers Edizioni EL, Einaudi Ragazzi, Emme Edizioni, Lavieri and NubeOcho.

Alessandro is constantly in search of new challenges to give space, voice and colour to his creativity.
