Alberto Delbianco was born in Staranzano (Go) on 18 August 1933. After middle school he attended the Nautical Technical Institute, which he left at the end of the fourth year to enroll in the "School of Specialization in Artistic Design" in Trieste. In 1960 he made his first contacts with the Belgian Bellvision and moved to Brussels where he collaborated in the creation of the cartoon "Pinocchio on the moon", awarded in the same year at the Venice Film Festival for children. In 1961 he worked in Rome for various publishing houses. Called to the RAI he engages in the animated documentary "The long green stocking" by Cesare Zavattini. Author of television theme songs and Caroselli, he joins Jacovitti's team and participates in the creation of one of his cartoons. Back in Staranzano, he works remotely for Edizioni Alpe, Fasani-Roma, Flaminia. Occasionally his signature also appears in various newspapers - humorous and otherwise - such as "Il travaso delle idee", "Bertoldo", "Candido", "Il mancino", "Virgola", "La Domenica del Corriere", "Serenissimo", "Super Calandrino", "Supersex", "Telesera"; as well as in the weekly magazines for children "Il Monello", "Il Pioniere", "Tiramolla", "Il Vittorioso". Among the awards it is worth remembering a Silver Medal in Foligno in 1963 at the National Humor Exhibition and a First Prize for the comic character Paramecius at the International Comics Exhibition in Lucca in 1967. In parallel with the comic he develops a graphic genre- bichromatic painter and devoted himself to oil painting. He died suddenly in Monfalcone (Go) in 1971.
