Comic books are my life, I cannot imagine doing anything else.
Luca Mencaroni grew up in the town of Lucca, where every year one of the largest European comic book festivals is organised. It’s therefore no wonder that he was fascinated by the colourful drawings and stories from such an early age. With his friends he bought comic after comic and, spontaneously, this hobby began to take serious form. So serious that after his law studies, he did not become a lawyer, but set up his own trade in comic books. The business went well and Luca Mencaroni came up with the idea of starting his own publishing house with books specifically for collectors of comic books.
In addition to being a publisher, Luca Mencaroni is also now an expert at Catawiki. In the relatively small Italian comic book world, he knows almost everyone. He enthusiastically informs his contacts about the auctions so that more and more Italian comic fans find Catawiki. This makes it easier than ever for collectors to complete their collections. Luca Mencaroni notices that the international public like the original drawings of renowned Italian comics like Hugo Pratt, who created the Corto Maltese comics and the exciting drawings by Milo Manara.
