Fumetto Card #51: IRMA BANDIERA and GABRIELLA DEGLI ESPOSTI

For Mimma and Balella, the solidarity Fumetto Card #51 is dedicated to all the freedom fighters and to those who sacrificed their lives for the ideals of peace and justice.

Irma “Mimma” Bandiera was born in Bologna on 8 April 1915. Partisan relay in the 7th G.A.P., she soon became a bold fighter, ready for the riskiest actions. She was captured by the Nazi-fascists following a firefight. Irma also had compromising documents with her, for six days she was tortured, without being able to make her confess the names of her fighting companions. The fascists once again raged on her tortured body, blinded her and then transported her to the foot of the San Luca hill, where on 14 August 1944 she was shot.

Gabriella “Balella” Degli Esposti was born in Calcara (Bologna) on 1 August 1912. Mother of two small girls (and another on the way) she had transformed, with her husband, her home into a Resistance base and participated in sabotage actions . Above all, she was very involved in organizing the first “Women’s Defense Groups”. On 13 December 1944, Gabriella Degli Esposti was captured, in the same house as her, by a group of SS, identified by fascist spies. Subjected for days to stringent interrogations and torture, although pregnant, before being shot on 17 December 1944, Gabriella was horribly tortured, deprived of her eyes, with her belly torn open and her breasts cut off.

Mimma and Balella are designed by Mabel Morri, already author for Figurine Forever of the solidarity comic card dedicated to the Cervellati Brothers, the Chilean President Allende and Victor Jara.
