Through the window came the pleasant scent of the countryside. There was neither a breath of wind nor the rustling of leaves. Nothing broke the silence of the evening except for the croaking of the frogs in a distant pond. I dawdled to look out in the darkness in the tranquillity; not far away, a young cat was sneaking recklessly into the traffic on the provincial roads. Through the gardens, through the houses and through the darkness, until she reached me. Finally, after such a long time, the cat Giorgina had found me again. She was buzzing like a dynamo that never stops. She was buzzing with happiness. I was also very happy to see her again and to hear the new story that she had to tell me: a flat in the city and a very distracted family… A shout in the night! A call for help from the top of the stairs, from that palace of distracted people. A mystery was awaiting upstairs…

Andrea Govoni was born in Bologna on 3rd of July in 1975 and spent his school years in the province of the city. He inherited the family passion for film and cinema; his elder brother contributed to his interest in comics and illustration.

After finishing his studies at the ISART of Bologna in 1995, he attended a seminar on the eight-month comic book. The creative turning point occurred when he met Giorgina the Cat, in 2002, in the characteristic mountain areas between the regions of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany… The cat was entrusted to him by a middle-aged couple passing through those parts.

The cute feline has lived many adventures and has become for Andrea an infinite source of inspiration. His task now is only to collect, rework and illustrate the mythical exploits of Giorgina.
