Fred Forever! The Comic Card # 22 is a mix of emotions, of memories that seem distant in time, but which on the contrary are alive and strong, in the hearts of fans, fans and all Italians. We are pleased to present the solidarity card of the immense Fred Buscaglione with the Grande Torino shirt.
However, 1949 was an unforgettable year. Tragic, unique, exciting. On the one hand, a football team, Torino, which had been dominating for several years in Italy and also in Europe, disappeared. Perhaps not the strongest team of all time (impossible to make comparisons between different eras) but certainly the most loved, by all, even if the heart is not grenade.
Also in 1949 the musical career of Fred Buscaglione definitely took off, thanks to the creation of the orchestral group Asternovas and hundreds of concerts up and down the boot. While we wept for the Superga massacre, we danced with Fred, with the city of Turin in our hearts.
The idea of creating a supportive cartoon figurine of Fred was born thanks to the collaboration with Giacomo Taddeo Traini, author of the graphic novel “Swing, barbera and Fred” (Edizioni Becco Giallo, 2022), on the centenary of the birth of the great Buscaglione . Giacomo enthusiastically responded to our proposal and created the perfect sticker, in full harmony with the intent of the project, Fred’s light-hearted gaze, the Grande Torino shirt, in the background the symbols of the city Turin. The edition of the figurine, 149, has a precise meaning.
An important partner of the initiative is the MEI in Faenza, the Meeting of Independent Labels has always carried out an incredible job of enhancing and promoting Italian music. Involving them in the project was not just a pleasure, almost a duty.
FRED FOR MADAGASCAR!
