Aldro Forever. Our solidarity stickers have always the aim of raising awareness, making people known but also remembering. The Comic Card # 12 was born with this intent, to remember the story of Federico Aldrovandi. A boy, like so many others, killed during a police check, returning from a night at the disco, like so many others.
It is not our task nor our intention to be judges, as ordinary citizens we are still today, after 16 years, incredulous of what happened, perpetrated by representatives of the state. This is why it is important not to forget Federico.
The initiative is made possible thanks to the support of the girls and boys of the Curva Ovest, the ultras of SPAL. They responded with enthusiasm and participation to our proposal and with them we contacted Alberto Lunghini, a well-known designer from Ferrara. For this card, for Federico, we wanted an author from the city. Furthermore, Lunghini drew Ferrara and the people of Ferrara, SPAL and its supporters among his works. There could not have been a better choice.
The card is also rich in meanings, always with a sporty approach (in this case even more so given the involvement of the ultras, always at the forefront in demanding justice for Aldro) but with messages that perhaps need to be explained. We wanted to design Aldro as a Spal player, the bycicle kick is the thought that what happened erased the dreams of a boy, including those of when, attacking the players’ stickers, he dreamed one day of scoring a goal, perhaps in his stadium, in front to its people.
ALDRO FOR AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL!
With this solidarity card + postcard, it will be possible to support the Adotta Con La Figurina project and the activities of Amnesty International Italy, not in general, by the will of all those involved in the production of the solidarity card, but expressly for the “Immediate Identification Codes” campaign to provide for identification measures for agents engaged in transactions of public order.
Given the probable high demand for the solidarity card, we decided, for the first time, to print not 150 but 300 copies, always numbered and limited, without providing for reprints. In the hope that our initiative will be successful, we like to think that we will be able to meet in Ferrara, in a year, to present a new Federico card, different from the first one.
