Hugo Pratt, illustrator, painter of water colours and creator of Corto Maltese: a man about whom many stories are told that have become part of the Pratt legend was born in Rimini, Italy in 1927. Pratt's maternal grandfather was English, living in Lyon France, and he was an only son of a diplomat father and a gypsy mother (or so the legend goes).

He spent his childhood in Venice before joining his father in Abyssinia (then an Italian colony, now Ethiopia) at the age of 10. Prisoner of the English and then the Germans during WWII, he spent the end of the war organizing entertainment events for the allied soldiers.
