Marcello Corti was born in 1961 in Bergamo, in Northern Italy. Twenty years later, Marcello transformed his passion for photography into a profession and began working with publishers to create art books and photography.
Like many artists in the late eighties, he discovered the computer which transformed his graphics work and has since worked with a number of advertising agencies in Milan. With his partner Barbara Gerardi, who is also an illustrator, Marcello founded a website which promotes illustration, graphics and photography.
These days, Marcello concentrates mainly on pictorial illustration, with the beautiful Italian surroundings being the main source of inspiration.
