In his past life, Matteo Bussola was an architect. At the age of thirty-five, he decided everything would change. Today he is father to Virginia, Ginevra, and Melania and draws cartoons for a living. When he has ink to spare, he writes. He has a Facebook profile read by thousand of people, where he has been publishing stories, reflections and short accounts of family life for some years now. In 2016, Einaudi Stile Libero published his first book, Sleepless nights and kisses for breakfast, and in 2017 will be publishing his second book, Their Dreams Are Pure.
