Along with Omero Valenti , his business partner , he manage to create 'Sor Arrigo' and his cat, the main characters of a Animated commercial , the first one that brought animated publicity to Italian Cinema (..) the studio produced 4 more of these short films,and the last one was the first to have sound, back in 1930..(..)
