A year later, we return to Ferrara, a year later we still feel strongly the duty to remember a boy, on the occasion of the anniversary of his death, which took place on 25 September 2005, killed by the murderous madness of those who, instead of representing the State and his values, he raged violently on Aldro who had, the only fault if it can be considered such, of living his young age.
After the great success of the first solidarity Comic Card, printed in 300 numbered copies and sold out in a single day, we therefore decided to make a second one, completely different from the previous one. Like the first one, the Ferrara illustrator and cartoonist Alberto Lunghini created it. Thinking of meeting the strong demand and the many disappointed by not being able to take a copy of the first one, this time we printed 500 copies, a truly significant number compared to our parameters, but we are sure that everyone’s response will be equally important.
There is a logical and dramatic sequence between the first and the second card, in the first we imagined Federico and his dreams, in this we wanted to somehow underline all the movement that was created after his death, not only in the his memory but also and above all in the search for truth and justice.
Movement that was a group of ordinary people, organizations such as Amnesty International, institutions but also and perhaps above all the curves of the ultras, from north to south, from Serie A to the minor leagues, from football to basketball, from the boys of the Curva Ovest of Spal to other groups that, even today, carry the image of Federico around the stadiums, so that he may never be forgotten and who, still and incredibly, is sometimes opposed by those in charge of public order in some cities.
“Aldro lives” therefore, in the heart of his family and of those who loved him. In the passion of those who also know how to put aside love for their team and hatred for the opponent, for a common interest, for a thirst for justice and solidarity that knows neither colors nor relegations nor categories.
The photos of the curves that you find on the front of the postcard were provided by the Aldrovandi family who have collected them in the last 17 years, we have not been able to put them all, they were really too many.
Update: we realized, too late and only after having already sent the postcard to print, that the same image was inserted twice at the expense of that of the curve of the Ultras Foggia. It was not possible to remedy the error in time for the presentation in Ferrara. For this reason, an updated edition will be printed in a very limited number of copies, 18 copies, a free version, so as to be able to give credit to the Foggia fans too. We apologize for the inconvenience.
ALDRO for AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL!
With the proceeds of this new card + postcard, it will be possible to support the activities of Amnesty International
