  1. Quiqueg is a fictional character in H. Melville’ novel Moby-Dick. Quiqueg is a cannibal giant, fully covered in tattoos, but he is also a prince with a gentle soul who left his throne back in Polinesia to see the world. Aboard the Pequod, the ship that hunts the While Whale, Quiqueg is head of the harpooners.


“[…] but, the truth is, these savages have an innate sense of delicacy, say what you will; it is marvellous how essentially polite they are.

  1. Quiqueg is an integrated creative agency: we design and produce advertising, institutional communication and graphic design projects. We work together with a Trees Home – a video/photo production company that shares our passion for projects made with flair and care – and with freelancers from the creative sector who inhabit our coworking space in Milan.

Before establishing Quiqueg we were all part of Le Balene, an historic Milanese communication boutique.

Who is Quiqueg

Marco Andolfato

Client director & partner

Graduated in Theoretical Physics, he then slightly wandered, working for 10 years in multinational corporations’ marketing and sales. He established Quiqueg after managing the advertising agency Le Balene for fifteen years. He practices meditation daily, and he benefits a lot from it.

Irene Bruni

Account manager & partner

After studying to become an interpreter, today she mediates the dialogue between creatives and clients, but has her say in it. In her free time, she volunteers in empowerment and networking associations. She speaks English (very well), French (bah oui) and Dutch (een beetje).

Massimo Verrone

Executive Creative Director & Partner

He began his career as a textile designer, before changing course and becoming an art director at Publicis. He has worked for international advertising agencies such as Lowe Pirella, Leagas Delaney, 1861united, Grey, Leo Burnett and FCB. He is teacher of the Master of Digital Art Direction at the Istituto Marangoni. Between one project and another, he still finds time to honor his past as a national bowls champion.

Livia Nardone

Junior Account

A cosmopolitan, she lived in Malta and Tallinn before finally settling in Milan. Solving other people's problems is one of her favorite occupations, that’s why she takes care of her clients' needs as if they were old friends. She loves the sea, cheese and life.

Pietro Catteneo


He is a walking repository of fun facts and he speaks so fast that he had to embrace writing to be understood. He likes when words are used with care and if you can't find him in front of a keyboard, he is probably on a motorcycle or behind a camera.

Francesca Sansovini

Art Director

Aka Franca, she has grown in Emilia-Romagna living and breathing fashion… and eating piadine. She has become Art Director to spread her idea of beauty across the world. She is to 3D graphics as moths are to a street lamp.

Elisa Villa

Art Director

She works as an art director but lives as an illustrator: drawing on paper, tablet and walls is her own way to think about herself and the world.

Eleonora Petrolati

Graphic Designer

Constantly on a mission to do beautiful things. She loves leafing through pages and petting papers, she is also fond of calligraphy and amateur photographer.
