Bernardo Leporini

Bernardo Leporini (1904 – 1992) was an Italian artist and caricaturist active in the Mussolini years and postwar era. Born in Rome, Leporini attended the Accademia Belle Arti Roma, after which he began producing cartoons for ‘Il Travaso.’ He lived and worked in Germany between 1929 and 1936. He drew some propagandistic cartoons during the Second World War, but mostly focused on fantasy works intended for children while also producing works with a pacifist message. After the war, he openly associated with socialism and frequently produced works ridiculing Mussolini and fascism, which were later collected and published as ’20 anni di fascismo visti da Leporini.’
