This is my graduation thesis, written just for fun. 
It stems from the desire to explore what is perhaps a return to an almost avant-garde type of language (the illustration) , that if the 60s onwards was seen almost with disdain, relegating it to a strip of audience considered "niche" (even today, especially in Italy, illustration and design are relegated to the field of childhood and comics, among other things also believed by many as childish), while in the rest of the world is regaining dignity in the eyes of the public and users, for a variety of reasons which I will treat in this paper.
For fun, yes, but also as a necessity to cover a glaring flaw rather substantial part of information in general that still seems to ignore an argument that instead was always under the eyes of everyone, and that especially affects every creative myself. Being constantly in contact with the most diverse artists, all united by a particular sensitivity in describing concepts, particularly complex, with few signs marked on a blank sheet of paper, the need to explore these issues was made as to make it look like this written almost necessary .
Elaborating on this thesis has been instrumental in the support of some of illustrators Italian peak on the world, to which I extend my heartfelt thanks for their cooperation and their willingness, to which I have referred three basic questions:
 
1) Why illustration is recently returning in the editoria?
2 ) What is the genesis of an illustration for the publishing industry ?
3 ) How do you see the illustration inherent to digital publishing and how do you see the future of this trend?
 
So I tried to explain, quite unusually, the result of a process of creative growth and an internalization of a certain way of communicating, what has been the search path (also quite unusual , since there is a large literature from which to write on, offset ,however, by a multitude of digital sources such as blogs and articles ), but above all thanks to the help of artists active in the branch of illustration and comics, but above all to explain what is changing in the modern illustration.
