Lorenzo Clerici wanted to be a palaeontologist as a child so that he could discover all there was to know about dinosaurs. As a grown-up, he creates videos and animations for Studio TIWI and is Silvia Borando's right-hand man in the running of minibombo. He lives between Cesate and Reggio Emilia in Italy, and is known as "Dudi" to all his friends.
