Giuseppe Salvia is Deputy Director and Head of the maximum security department of the Poggioreale prison, Naples, when he is assassinated by the Nuova Camorra Organizzata on the orders of Raffaele Cutolo, for having been a point of resistance in the fight of the State against the Camorra.
The solidarity Comic Card #33 is dedicated to the memory of Salvia and to all the innocent victims of the mafia. It was April 14, 1981, when Giuseppe, 38 years old married with two daughters (Antonino and Claudio), returning from work, was followed and shot to death in a cowardly ambush on the Naples ring road, by a commando from the area by Ponticelli.
The decision to draw him in front of a foosball table is a happy intuition of the Salvia family, following the information gathered on the setting that solidarity stickers often have. The aim is also to want, in some way, to “humanize” those who fought against mafia power and were unfortunately often killed for it. Giuseppe Salvia was not an ordinary man, of great values and sound principles, but he was also a person, a father, like many others, with his passions, such as that for table football.
The splendid drawing of the card was created by Italo Mattone, professor at the International School of Comics in Naples and well-known cartoonist for publishers such as Eura, Renoir and Sergio Bonelli Editore, in particular for the Julia, Martin Mystère, Odessa and Saguaro series.
The Comic Cards linked to the support of associations, realities and non-profit organizations against the mafias, have a circulation with an extremely symbolic number, 109, like the 1996 law for the public and social reuse of assets confiscated from the mafias.
