    Francesca Pirrone is a freelance illustrator from Italy. As a child, she used to draw for hours. Her mother got so angry that she confiscated the eraser... but it was all for nothing. Pirrone went to the Art Institute in Florence and studied engraving, decorating, sculpture and mosaic. Her passion is to illustrate childrens books. She loves to create characters and invent stories for them. She made a few tactile books for blind children. Two of them were awarded by the Italian Federation of the Blind. In 2016 she was honored with the Key Colours Award of Clavis for the book Bruno has 100 friends.
