The comic couple of Italian cinema becomes a solidarity card, Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia are Forever Card #25. In a probably unedited guise, certainly original. Franco and Ciccio were proud Sicilians, in love with their land and supporters of their hometown team, Palermo.
A good starting point for imagining them as players, perhaps in one of their famous films, as players of the Rosanero club, in a not too improbable game of hypotheses. The two actors are imagined footballers from the 60s, the exact year is deliberately not specified, after all, not even the shirt worn is exactly the same. They wouldn’t be Franco and Ciccio otherwise!
The solidarity card was created thanks to the availability and collaboration of the sons of the great actors: Maria Letizia and Massimo for Franco, Giampiero for Ciccio. The unconventional choice was also appreciated, giving free rein to the imagination and also to have fun. In the cinematic history of the duo there is also a film dedicated to the world of football, it is revealed on the postcard, by removing the card and discovering the image printed underneath. Thanks to the “photo envelope” donated by a collector.
The first edition of the solidarity card is printed in 112 limited and numbered copies. A non-random choice is the total number of films shot together by the two Sicilian actors.
The love for their land is also reaffirmed by the social purpose of this new solidarity figurine, connected to the “Adotta Con La Figurina” project and in particular to Marevivo Onlus, which carries out a fundamental work, thanks also to the commitment of many volunteers , for the care and protection of our beaches, our sea and its inhabitants.
