Franco Serra collaborated since the 80’s with a lot of innovative television emissions in the three channels of RAI, including: “Mr. Fantasy,” “Obladi Oblada,” “Italia Sera,” “Moda,” “La TV delle Ragazze” and runned two monthly magazines dedicated to comics (TIC – la rivista dei curiosi and Nemo) as well as a very important group of comic authors representing one of the most innovative movements in the European and international landscape during the 80’s being also the first European link with many of the american artists related to Art Spiegelman’s Raw Group.
