Edifumetto was an Italian publishing house of comics, founded by Renzo Barbieri. It was started in 1972 and folded in 1993. The majority of their publications were digest- or pocket-sized adult comics known in Italy as fumetti. Popularity peaked in the mid 1970s when they were selling millions of comics each month. Their success was due in large part to the elaborate cover illustrations, rendered by classically trained painters such as Alessandro Biffignandi, Emanuele Taglietti, Pino D'Angelico, Roberto Molino, Carlo Jacono, Averardo Ciriello or Enzo Sciotti.
