Alberto Giolitti was born in Rome on November 14, 1923, and worked in his family's popular cafe before his first comic strip was published at the young age of 20. Alberto started working for the magazine Il Vittorioso in the late 1930s. In 1943, he drew his first comic, called 'I Sensa Paura'. In 1946, he moved Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he worked for the publishing houses Lainez and Columba. During this period, he produced police stories and novel adaptations, including 'Quo Vadis?'. He emigrated to the United States in 1949, where he began a collaboration with Dell/Western Publishing. There, he produced art for 'The Challenge of Zorro', 'Indian Chief', 'Cisko Kid', 'Tonto', 'Tarzan', 'Sergeant Preston', 'Abraham Lincoln Life' and the Four Color Comics series. He also illustrated comic adaptations of television series like 'Lone Ranger's Famous Horse Hi-Yo Silver', 'Gunsmoke', 'Tom Bell', 'Tales of Wells Fargo', 'Have Gun Will Travel' and 'Boris Karloff' and films like 'Alexander the Great', 'Aladdin and the Marvellous Lamp' and 'Gulliver's Travels'. Giolitti returned to Italy in the early 1960s, but continued to draw 'Turok Son of Stone' for the American market. He founded the Giolitti Studios, which consisted of about about 55 artists, who produced hundreds of pages a month for national and international publishers. The studio provided erotic comics for magazines of the publishing house Edipériodicci (Jacula, Cosmine), but also popular titles like 'Super Black', 'The Phantom', 'Mandrake' and 'Flash Gordon'. For the US market, they drew comics with Warner Bros characters and several series for Dell/Gold Key, such as 'Freedom Agent', 'Twilight Zone', 'Lord Jim', 'Tarzan', 'Star Trek', a 'King Kong' adaptation', stories for Ripley's Believe It or Not', 'Laredo', 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea', 'Cowboy in Africa', etc
