Massimiliano Tappari graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera, Milan. He wrote and illustrated books using the photocopies of his home keys and photographing the surface of a coffee maker. He found out that a goose beak is a mini Eiffel Tower and that wash basins make a noise. A space reader, he invents projects to stimulate children to use creativity and grasp the fantastic side of everyday life. He has held amazing workshops in schools, libraries, museums and festivals.
