Zanardi full name: Massimo Zanardi is a comics character created by Andrea Pazienza , arguably his most famous creation. He is the main actor in a series of graphic novels which appeared in installments on several Italian comics magazines during the early s. The character quickly found an enthusiastic audience in the clique of young, artsy, new-waveish Italians who were disillusioned with the previous decade's political slant and were instantly hooked on the character's basic, hedonistic individualism and cynicism, tempered with cultural influences ranging from Joseph Conrad to Vladimir Mayakovsky. The Zanardi graphic novels were reprinted several times in the decades following Pazienza's death, in original black and white and colored form. Pazienza's original drawings were mostly colored by his wife, Marina Comandini, but some episodes have been coloured by unknown students in Bologna 's Art School, to which Pazienza gave the original drawings on a whim. He is a tall, blond, thin, well-dressed  son of a bourgeois family, and his distinctive physical feature is an exaggerated, prominent hooked nose.
