Mamma'e Funtana (aka Maria Farranca, Maria Abbranca, Mamma e su Putzu, Maria Franca e' Erru, Maria Mangrofa, Strega e' Funtana, Maria Pettinedda) is a creature found in Sardinian folklore,
when I was a child my mom used to tell me scary stories about her.
She lives in a well, she's a really ugly old lady with long nails to seize children.
I've done this drawing for Contus Antigus, 11 illustrators from my island for 11 tales of the Sardinian tradition.
I've just received my copy of DPI magazine Art Quarter vol.7 from Taiwan, they asked me some
questions for a short interview months ago. I'm included in this special issue dedicated to the Bologna Illustrators Exhibition and I have the honor to share my works with artists and friends I admire, such as Michele Rocchetti, Marco Somà, Philip Giordano, etc.
