Celebrate Napoli’s third Scudetto by always keeping the memory strong and alive of those who cannot be here to celebrate this immense joy that has overwhelmed the city and millions of fans, even from other teams or often not even football fans.
The solidarity Comic Card #37 is in memory of Giancarlo Siani and all the innocent victims of the mafia.
Giancarlo Siani was a fan of Napoli and also a sportsman, player and coach of a volleyball team. His job as a journalist probably didn’t allow him to devote much space to following football, but he would certainly have been enthusiastic about it.
Giancarlo Siani was unable to celebrate any of the three championships he won. He was only able to share the joy of Maradona’s arrival in Naples, but when the first championship arrives, in the 1986/87 championship, Giancarlo had already been killed by the Camorra, a year and a half earlier, on September 23, 1985, at just 26 .
Giancarlo was a reporter for Il Mattino. His investigations into the Camorra left their mark, which is why he was killed, because he was an uncomfortable journalist, a cheerful boy, sincere but absolutely stubborn and convinced in carrying on his work. He remained in the hearts of many, with his Olivetti typewriter with which he wrote over 600 articles and surveys.
The photos were supplied by the Siani family, under the removable solidarity card, the original photo of Giancarlo, from which the inspiration for the drawing was taken, can be seen printed on the postcard; he is in black and white, with the peculiarity of the green hat, a detail that we wanted to add, like his Mehari car, a symbol by heart that has been carried around the cities of Italy over the years.
The design was created by Dario Ruggieri, a great Napoli fan, to whom he dedicated two comic books “My Maradona tattoo” and “My first UEFA Cup. Stuttgart 05/17/89”.
The first edition, numbered and limited, is not accidental. 326, 3 like the Napoli badges, 26 like the 1926 founding year of the Club Napoli, but 26 also like the few years that Giancarlo was able to live.
The initiative is carried out in collaboration with the Napoli Club Bologna, named in memory of Giancarlo Siani. Figurine Forever will bring the sticker to Naples on June 7, on the occasion of the day in Ponticelli in memory of Ciro Colonna.
