Romani & Giovanni. Romani & Giovanni were created by the Italian author Mario Frattini and appeared in Avventure Coloniali di due Balilla #1-26 (1936-1937).

Italo Romani [sic] and Giovanni Sto are a pair of Italian Boy Scouts who travel across Africa, fighting lions, snakes, caimans, and bad men, and discovering how idyllic and even utopian are those colonies ruled by the fascist government of Italy.

Romani and Giovanni appear in stories with titles like “The Service of Civilization,” “The Terrible Ras,” and “The Tomb at the Oasis.”
