A sailor and adventurer, born in La Valletta in Malta in 1887, Corto Maltese debuted in the magazine “Sgt. Kirk” in 1967 in the serial “Ballad of the Salt Sea" written and illustrated by Hugo Pratt. Since then, the legend of Corto Maltese has crossed borders and decades, becoming a symbol of freedom, elegance, and adventure. Corto Maltese is adventure in its purest form. He is a romantic and fascinating hero, drawing his readers along on his voyages around the world. Corto is the sea and its soaring gulls, he is the mundane and ironic conversation that suspends time and the pleasure of living adventure. He is an atypical hero, elegant and nonchalant. A man of action, champion of freedom and humanism, Corto crosses the globe from the Pacific Isles to the Siberian plains, from Africa to the lost continent of Mu, in search of emotion, danger and romance. Head for the beach in the late afternoon when the light is sharp and clear, look out over the ocean into the distance and you will spot Corto Maltese.
