Fan Forever Card #17: STEFANO AMBROGI!

Mandrakata forever! Now we can say it, on the occasion of FIGUCON 7 in Rome we were very keen to create something related to the world of cinema, in the Eternal City, in the city of cinema. We are happy to have had the opportunity to involve a beloved face, especially in Rome but not only.

The FanForever Card # 17 is dedicated to Stefano Ambrogi, film, television and theater actor. He has worked with great names such as Carlo Verdone, Gigi Proietti and Carlo Vanzina. We remember him in important roles in cult films such as “They Called Him Jeeg Robot” or “Horse Fever” and in many of the most important television productions of the last 20 years.

Stefano is also an avid Lazio fan, we could have chosen for his solidarity card the year of his birth or his debut in the cinema, but also on his recommendation we have chosen to dress him as the “biancoceleste” footballer of the first championship and his idol Vincenzo D’Amico.

The presentation will be one of the great moments of FIGUCON 7, organized within the 33rd edition of Music Day, the Rome Disco Fair, our partners also in the creation of this new solidarity card.

Stefano Ambrogi will be with us on Saturday 7 May in the afternoon, for the meeting on stage and then for the signing of copies at the Figurine Forever stand. An incredible opportunity to get to know him, get involved in his irresistible sympathy and of course have your own copy of the card signed!

STEFANO AMBROGI FOR MADAGASCAR! We thank Stefano for the availability and sympathy to join our initiative. The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

FumettoCard #17: SONSERI & LAUCIELLO!

We are always excited to announce a new solidarity card, in this case we are just as little bit incredulous and certainly very happy to be able to pay homage to a myth. The ComicCard # 17 is Carlo Pedersoli, aka BUD SPENCER!

The initiative was made possible thanks to the splendid and fruitful collaboration both with the Pedersoli family (we thank Cristiana, Diamante and Giuseppe Pedersoli) and with Marco Sonseri and Roberto Lauciello, authors of the comic biography of the great Italian actor, released this year with ReNoir Comics.

As you know, our Fumetto Cards always have a sporting reference, in the case of Bud Spencer we also wanted to pay homage to his hometown, to which he has always remained very attached, Naples. We also wanted to remember the most unforgettable period for Neapolitan fans, which is why Bud wears the jersey of the times of Diego Armando Maradona who, together with many other champions, led the club to win in Italy and in Europe.

It is not the only reference you will find, the particular edition of the solidarity card is a reference to one of Bud Spencer’s most loved films, 163 numbered copies, 63 as the jersey number that the gentle giant wore in “They Called Him Bulldozer”.

Exclusive preview at FIGUCON 2022! The solidarity card will be presented as an absolute preview at the traditional event organized by the Figurine Forever Association, scheduled for next January 15th at Estragon Club, Bologna.

BUD SPENCER for MAESTRI DI STRADA!

With the proceeds of this new solidarity card + postcard, it will be possible to support the activities of the non-profit organization MAESTRI DI STRADA (https://www.maestridistrada.it/), splendid reality deeply rooted in the territory of Naples and to which, in agreement with the Pedersoli family, the proceeds are destined.

FanForever Card #15: NOVELLO NOVELLI!

“Forty years at SIP ..”, after 14 solidarity cards linked to personalities from the world of music, we are happy to announce the film premiere, Fan Forever # 15 is dedicated to the great Novello Novelli! The Tuscan actor, seen in many films by Francesco Nuti, Alessandro Benvenuti, but also Mario Monicelli, Giovanni Veronesi and many others.

His facial expressions were a trademark, which became a strong point of Italian comedy. Many watching the various films were anxiously awaiting when Novelli would appear. After a career as a theatrical impresario, he went on to become an actor, probably by chance, in the film “Ad Ovest di Paperino”, 1981, together with his longtime friend Francesco Nuti as well as two other monuments of Florentine cinema such as Alessandro Benvenuti and Athina Cenci, who then formed a trio with the name of “Giancattivi”.

Precisely from that film we remember the famous scene where Novello recounted, with every single fold of his face, the experience of 40 years as a Sip worker (the old Telecom, for the youngest ..). 1981-2021, forty years after his debut in the cinema we had the opportunity to celebrate him with the Fiorentina shirt, of which he was a great fan.

Novello Novelli, born in 1930, left us in 2018, we were able to make the solidarity card thanks to the availability of his wife Silvana, whom we will never stop thanking for her availability and for the memories and anecdotes shared with us. History of Italian cinema, Novello is a worthy representative of it.

NOVELLO FOR GIGLIO AMICO ONLUS! The proceeds from the sale of the solidarity card are intended to support the activities of the Giglio Amico Onlus Association of Florence (https://www.giglioamico.it/), historic and important Florentine reality, with strong purple hues, for 25 years engaged in solidarity field. Reality with which Figurine Forever has already had the opportunity to collaborate and support, proud to renew this partnership. Novello Novelli was an honorary member of the non-profit organization.

FumettoForever Card #13: ISABELLA DI LEO!

“It can be done!”. Perhaps some of you, we can hardly believe it, have never seen Frankenstein Jr. (Young Frankenstein), but we challenge anyone to tell us they have never heard of it. Either way, run and see it, then come back here.

We are happy to announce the Fumetto Card # 13, created by Isabella Di Leo, cartoonist but also a sincere lover of cinema and in particular of Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder. Thanks to the two of them and their professional union, a film was born that rightly entered the myth, the costume, the tradition of cinema. Mel and Gene were also friends, they made several films together, but Young Frankenstein remains, even in terms of success, the most successful.

Isabella Di Leo has created a splendid graphic novel (Edizioni Becco Giallo) that tells the story of the friendship between Mel and Gene and of the film, the path that led them to its realization. Di Leo did an amazing job of documenting. As collectors as we are, however long and exhausting, we are sure she had a lot of fun.

Our Fumetto Cards always have a sporting reference, it is our “trademark” that distinguishes us. Here we did not have to investigate the passions of the two myths of American cinema, it was enough to read the comic (we do not want to anticipate anything), but the two crazy people had a passion for tennis. Maybe not to participate in the US OPEN, but their victories have collected them in other fields.

MEL & GENE FOR THE CANCER INSTITUTE

The proceeds from this new solidarity cards are destined for the Cancer Institute of Milan.

FanForever Card #11: GIORGIO VANNI!

Dragonball Forever! And a hundred other cartoon themes, all sung or written or both by Giorgio Vanni. He is the protagonist of Fan Forever Card # 11! The Milanese singer, born in 1963, is actually much more, for example the author of other great names in Italian music. On this occasion we decided to celebrate his best known activity, that of Japanese cartoon themes.

The solidarity card, like all those we make, is not accidental. The debut in the world of cartoons, in the company of his alter ego Max Longhi, took place in 1998. Destiny, the same year, led Japan to reach a final phase of the World Cup for the first time. Could we not take this into account?

The solidarity card will be presented on the occasion of Riminicomix 2021 (https://www.riminicomix.it/) where Giorgio Vanni will be a great protagonist on stage on the evenings of Friday 16 and Saturday 17 July 2021

GIORGIO VANNI FOR MADAGASCAR!

With the proceeds of this new card + postcard, through the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA project, it will be possible to support the distance adoptions in favor of the Mondobimbi Village in Tulear, Madagascar
