The importance of memory, to keep it alive, present, contemporary. Historical but also current memory, sporting, musical, artistic, cultural but also social, popular, even political and trade union memory.
The now large family of solidarity stickers is enriched with a new series: “The stickers of memory”, with the aim of remembering, telling, divulging characters, places, stories that regardless of the past must not be forgotten, on the contrary they can be contextualized in the present, because the past teaches if we have the ability and awareness to want to listen to it.
The “Stickers of memory” series begins with the story of a woman, who was a point of reference for the trade union movement and the Italian political one, even before women were allowed to vote:
Argentina Bonetti Altobelli (Imola 2 July 1866 – Rome 26 September 1942)
Trade unionist, she participated in the foundation of Federterra in 1901 as a delegate of Malarbergo and became its general secretary from 1906 until its dissolution by the fascist regime. He was President of the Women’s Mutual Aid Society of Bologna and member of the Executive Commission of the Bologna Chamber of Labor. In 1906 he participated in the founding Assembly of the CGIL in Milan. A socialist of reformist inspiration, he dedicated his life to field workers, to the protection of women and children.
The purpose of the solidarity stickers is both economic and informative, although fundraising is always important, so is the message, awareness and, as mentioned, keeping the historical memory alive.
Fundamental in this sense was the collaboration with the Argentina Bonetti Altobelli Foundation and the “Paolo Pedrelli” Historical Archive of the CGIL of Bologna, which provided texts, photos, books and period documents that tell of a life always lived on the side of the weakest.
The Solidarity Sticker of Memory #1 is made in collaboration with the Bologna Metropolitan Chamber of Labor. It is not only a small contribution to the memory of a great woman, but also to the history of the most important Italian trade union, of its 130-year history, for this reason the edition is numbered in 1893 copies.
The hope, indeed the will, is that Argentina is only the beginning of a new story, in solidarity stickers, which starting from Bologna can make people remember, know and promote the best of our country, of yesterday, the day before yesterday and also of today. Women, Men, Organizations, Associations, Places, Dates, to keep in our memory and share it with others.
FOR HISTORICAL MEMORY!
