Sardinia Forever! This Comic Card is important for many reasons: it is the first of hopefully a fruitful and new collaboration with the many Sardinian friends who live in Bologna, our city. But it is also the last with the current graphics of the postcard that accompanied us for 26 issues, from number 27 you change! Sooner or last, it is an important solidarity card for its protagonist, Enrico Berlinguer.
Berlinguer is a character who goes beyond the ideas of each of us, he is a man who has been important for the history of Italy, his political passion, his values, his charisma even today, after so many years, remain indelible over time. Enrico was also a proud Sardinian, he deeply loved his land and was also passionate about football as well as sailing.
Berlinguer was from Sassari and a Cagliari fan, we like to think that as a young man he really dreamed of wearing that shirt and we are sure he was proud of what an island team had managed to do, winning a memorable championship. A way in some ways that reflected his political doctrine, firmly convinced that it is right to give everyone the opportunity to be there, to be able to compete, even without the money and the power of the great teams of the north.
To create the solidarity card we involved another exceptional Sardinian, cartoonist Otto Gabos, a Bolognese by adoption, but also strongly linked to his Sardinian origins. Otto has been the protagonist of Italian comics for almost 40 years, if you love author comics, you can’t help but know him. Some of us, lifelong comic book fans, remember him, among the many works, for “The Walkers”, a splendid graphic novel from the early 90s set in Bologna.
FOR SARDINIAN CULTURE!
With the proceeds of this new card + postcard, it will be possible to support the activities of the Circolo Sardegna (https://www.circolosardegna.net/)- Bologna and their project of a new cultural center in Bologna
