Fumetto Card #49: GIACOMO MATTEOTTI

Don’t forget the sacrifice of Giacomo Matteotti, 100 years after his death. The Fumetto Card #49 solidarity figurine is dedicated to the kidnapping and murder of the socialist parliamentarian, perpetrated by the fascist political police in June 1924.

Giacomo Matteotti was born in Fratta (RO) on 22 May 1885, studied in Rovigo and graduated in law in Bologna. From a wealthy family, the province where he lived was among the poorest in Italy, this certainly contributed to the growth of Matteotti’s political and moral sensitivity. On May 30, 1924, as a socialist deputy, he signed his death sentence with a speech to the Chamber. “Tempesta”, as he is called by his party comrades for his combative character, is aware of this, because he finished speaking – after having publicly denounced the systematic use of violence for intimidating purposes used by fascists to win the elections and contested the validity of the vote – says to his colleagues: «I have made my speech. Now you prepare the funeral speech for me.”

A few days later, on June 10, he was kidnapped in Rome. It is just after four in the afternoon and a team of fascists led by Amerigo Dumini takes him by force and puts him in a car, where he is beaten and stabbed to death, before being buried in the Quartarella woods, twenty-five kilometers from Capital.

The initiative was made possible thanks to the availability of the cartoonist Manuel De Carli, author with Francesco Barilli of the graphic novel “Il delitto Matteotti” for Becco Giallo Edizioni. The solidarity figurine is freely taken from the comic book.
