20 years of graphic novel in Italy it’s an opportunity of comparison and reflection on the graphic novel impact on our comics scene. There are many branches of this impact: from the economic ones, link to the editorial market transformations, to the “mutation” of the reading public, or even to the different ways in which comics have found their place in the contemporary imagination. ‘Ieri, oggi, domani’ chooses to concentrate on the analysis of certain narrative and aesthetic directions within which the graphic novel has developed, trying to highlight the questions, consciously posed, that these twenty years of graphic novels have generated.
