Emanuele Taglietti, born in 1943, is an Italian illustrator, mostly known for his covers for digest-sized, adult comics.
After attending a local art school, Emanuele Taglietti studied design at the Experimental Centre of Cinematography, in Rome. He worked as a decorator and an assistant director for around thirty movies, including Federico Fellini's Juliet of the Spirits, Dino Risi's Dirty Weekend, and others.
By the early 1970s, the popularity in Italy of the digest-sized fumetti comics, whose themes were mostly sex, violence, and horror, was at its peak. Taglietti moved on to work as an illustrator for Edifumetto, the biggest publisher of fumetti in Italy. He painted more than 500 covers for such books as Zora the Vampire, Sukia, Mafia, 44 Magnum and Wallestein the Monster.
