Quarantasei: Valentino Rossi, the Milo Manara way

For a glimpse of Valentino Rossi away from the racetrack, maybe you need to watch Milo Manara's animated series, Quarantasei

Italian writer and illustrator Milo Manara, famous for his wildly erotic and highly stylized comic books, has turned his redoubtable talents in an unlikely direction – Valentino Rossi. The 62-year-old Manara has been working on Quarantasei, an animated series on the life and times of The Doctor.

Talking about Manara on Wikipedia, Rossi says, ‘Manara has drawn some kind of a mythical history of my life, in cartoons, with some of my heroes such as Steve McQueen, Enzo Ferrari, Jim Morrison, and other characters such as my dog Guido, the chicken Osvaldo and a lot of beautiful women! I really like Milo – he’s a person whom I have admired for a long time.’
