Being an illustrator has been her work for more than five years and, at times, the mirror of his life. For Rita Petruccioli, story in images it is not a trivial matter. To draw a character, it is crucial to understand the feeling animating him, how he feels. Rita knows it: when she can look at herself in a character, that design is strong, powerful, a hundred times more than other drawings.

Beginnings
The beginnings were tough, she tells us joking on how difficult wasto find her own place. To her, figuring out what could be the right way to introduce herself was tricky too.
Then, finally, she was commissioned with many works: illustrations for children's books and advertising projects.

Present time
Rita is working on several projects: a short-term project that is a new book for children. A long-term project, on the other hand, consists of a new challenge: a comic book. An adventure Rita is facing together with screenwriter Giovanni Masi.

Future
The challenge of Rita is to work more and more abroad for a specific reason: she wants to be sure that everyone, even those who have a different background, can understand what she communicates with a drawings, not only by those who share her same context. 

Three words to describe the work of illustrator:
Anxiety, beauty and precision.

Creativity means...
Not to surrender.
