To celebrate Valentina Rosselli and the release of Cercando Valentina, the new documentary by Giancarlo Soldi on Guido Crepax and his Valentina, a comic book character loved by Bernardo, we dedicate this page of the archive diary to comics.

In the clips of Come Tex nessuno mai by Soldi, Bertolucci talks about the love transmitted to him by the poet poet Attilio.

Long live the comic!

Tex Willer by Bernardo Bertolucci

The video interview with Bertolucci on Tex is taken from the documentary written and directed by Giancarlo Soldi Come Tex nessuno mai (Italy, 2013).


At the bottom of this page are the covers of some of the comics beloved by Bernardo, that lingered on the small square table in his living room in plain view together with Attilio’s poems, a volume of stories by Roberto Bolaño and catalogs and monographs by artists and exhibitions to recommend to his friends.
