Italian Rock Forever! There are bands and artists that the whole world envies us, we are the homeland of opera and light music, but also in rock, especially in progressive, our school is loved internationally. Not one, but several artists, not one, but several bands. Area, Pfm, etc. and the Banco di Mutuo Soccorso. The FanFover Card # 18 is dedicated to the splendid voice of the Roman band, Francesco Di Giacomo!
Francesco, born in Sardinia, moved to Rome as a child and over the years he will be able to savor all its beauty, including sporting passion. Disappeared in a car accident in 2014, he was a great lover of sports, his wife Antonella told us that he often got up in the middle of the night when the Olympics or other competitions were taking place in distant countries and therefore at unlikely times. He was also a big fan of AS Roma.
The solidarity card represents him as a footballer for the “Giallorossi” club, 1971/72 season. The choice, as always is not accidental, in September 1971 Di Giacomo, during the Caracalla festival, comes into contact with the band that at the beginning of 1972 will take the final name of Banco di Mutuo Soccorso.
The color of the shirt, white, is a reference to the stickers of that season, as the Roma players are photographed. But we thought it would be a shame not to see Francesco also in the classic club shirt and so we made a variant. The solidarity cards, issued in 199 numbered and limited copies, are therefore from 1 to 100 with the 1971/72 shirt and from 101 to 199 with the more generic yellow and red shirt.
The initiative was made possible thanks to the friends of Music Day – Fiera del Disco in Rome and is carried out in collaboration with MEI, we will continue to celebrate Francesco also at the 2022 edition of the Independent Label Meetings at the beginning of October 2022. A heartfelt thanks to Antonella Caspoli, Francesco’s wife, for giving us the opportunity to realize this little dream of paying homage to a great protagonist of Italian rock. Thanks also to Fabio Massimo Iaquone, author of the splendid photo from which the solidarity card was made.
