Forever Card #29: THE GANG!

1984-2024 forty years of GANGs on the barricades. The solidarity card of Marino and Sandro Severini is the Forever Card #29, the brothers from the Marche in the unusual guise of cyclists.

It’s not a random choice:
. it is a tribute to Michele Scarponi who, like them, was a native of Filottrano. Michele is the protagonist of the solidarity sticker Celebrative Sticker #15 in collaboration and in support of the Foundation dedicated to him, which since his death in a road accident while he was busy training for the Giro d’Italia, has been committed to the prevention and protection of those who “tackle” the roads on two wheel
. it is in memory of the partisan relays who, covering kilometers and dangers, with their bicycles contributed to the liberation from Nazi-fascism

The musical and committed history of the Gang, their songs, have been and still are the soundtrack not only of all the charm of Italian folk and rock music, but also of how, through notes and words, awareness-raising initiatives can be carried out, solidarity and protection of historical memory, which our country absolutely needs, yesterday as today.

The race mentioned in the solidarity card really exists, its full name is the Gran Premio Caduti della Liberazione, it takes place every year since the end of the war around April 25th, organized by US Calcara. Sports club from the village of the same name on the outskirts of Bologna where Idro and Irnerio Cervellati were born. The cyclist brothers, to whom the solidarity Fumetto Card #35 with the splendid drawings by Mabel Morri was dedicated, were arrested together with their father Carlo because they had given food and accommodation to the partisan forces. Deported to the Gusen – Mauthausen concentration camp, they never returned.

40 years of Gang, which will be celebrated in 2024. The solidarity card anticipates the celebrations but there is no need for a precise time and place, the music and the stories that are told through the notes are valid every day of the year.

IN SUPPORT OF HISTORICAL MEMORY!

With this solidarity card it will be possible to support the Adotta Con La Figurina project where Figurine Forever annually engages in different solidarity projects and support for initiatives to keep the Historical Memory alive and current, in collaboration with ANED (National Association of Former Deportees in the Camps Nazis) and others, local and national, associations and institutions, who will want to share this cultural and social journey with Figurine Forever and The Gang.

Forever Card #28: BANDABARDO’!

“If I relax, I collapse“, 30 unlikely years for the Tuscan band, as they defined them themselves. The wildest, most passionate, bombastic and colorful Italian folk group in activity, the Forever Card #28 is Bandabardò!

Bandabardò was born on March 8, 1993, immediately dedicating itself to an intense live activity, in Italy and in Europe. Detail of the band that will never abandon them, now almost 2000 dates. Their albums have become one after another classics of Italian folk, combat folk and rock. Studio, live and social activities, a fundamental aspect in the life of the band.

Memorable 2018 with the concert event in Florence together with friends from the world of music such as Piero Pelù, Max Gazzè, Carmen Consoli, Modena City Ramblers, Cisco and Tonino Carotone. In 2021 the band has to stop due to the disappearance of the singer and founder Enrico “Erriquez” Greppi due to an incurable disease. A year later the band communicated its intention to continue its activity, announcing a collaboration with their friend Cisco Bellotti.

Currently the band is engaged in a book presentation tour that tells these long 30 years and at work so that there may be as many. The central image printed on the postcard, visible by moving the sticker, takes up the cover of the volume. The edition of the first edition of the solidarity sticker, in 130 copies, is naturally a tribute to the thirtieth anniversary of the band.

BANDABARDO’ for EMILIA ROMAGNA!
With this solidarity card it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects, until October 2023 will be entirely allocated to fundraising for the flooded areas in Emilia Romagna, in particular the musical realities, thanks to the collaboration with the MEI Meeting Etichette Indipendenti of Faenza.

Thanks to Bandabardò for the collaboration and the photographic archive.

Forever Card #10: ERRIQUEZ!

Erriquez forever! We are happy and excited to announce FanForever # 10 dedicated to the author and voice of Bandabardò. Card that wants to be a small tribute to a great protagonist of Italian music. Actually the idea is from a year ago, we have been talking about this idea with friends from Estragon Club for a long time.

Unfortunately we can no longer have the opportunity to personally deliver the card to Enrico, we are convinced that from up there he is looking at us with his engaging smile, the same one we tried to keep in the card.

Erriquez fan of Bologna FC??? Precisely in his last concert in Bologna, summer 2020, he talked about this peculiarity, he from Florence. Passion cultivated as a child and like all passions born as a child, logic does not always win, Enrico had fallen in love with the red and blue colors, certainly his way of being could not bring him closer to the big squadrons. In reality, Erriquez’s real passion was rugby, for this reason we are pleased to make an “exception to the rule” and we also put here the original photo from which we created the football one.

The photo was provided to us by Silvia, Erriquez’s wife, we will never stop thanking her for her humanity and her availability and for the emotions she wanted to share with us after seeing the image of the card. A very strong emotion for us too and we hope it will reach all the fans of Erriquez, Bandabardò, music and of course the stickers!

Erriquez’s card starts from Florence (his city), passes through Bologna (where his Bologna is located but also our Association), continues to Venice (where Edizioni Qubotondo is located, which deals with our productions), ending his journey in Naples. In Naples where the MAESTRI DI STRADA non-profit organization (https://www.maestridistrada.it/) is based, a splendid reality deeply rooted in the territory and to which, in agreement with the Greppi family, the proceeds are destined.

It could not be otherwise, a single city like Bandabardò is really tight, they are a national heritage, they have played in every corner of the beautiful country. We also like to imagine the Erriquez figurine traveling all over Italy.

The second edition is available, revised and renewed, in practice almost a new sticker, connected to the 30th anniversary of Bandabardò. For this reason the numbering continues with 130 new solidarity cards, that thirty at the end.. it’s no coincidence!

With this solidarity card it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects. Until October 2023, the proceeds from the second edition of the sticker will be donated to the musical realities affected by the flood in Emilia Romagna, in collaboration with the MEI – Meeting Etichette Indipendenti of Faenza. Subsequently and any other editions will be linked to the Adotta Con La Figurina project.

Forever Card #1: “CISCO”!

We are happy and proud to add a new initiative, which we hope will be appreciated by our members, fans of stickers, fans of singers and artists that we will involve.

Cards where great characters will be depicted in stickers with the colors of their favorite team! The first is now a friend of Figurine Forever: Stefano “Cisco” Bellotti. The singer naturally in the role of Bologna player, given the historical great passion for the red and blue colors. Not only that, being the headquarters of our Association in the city of Bologna, it seemed to us the most welcome departure, as it had already been for the Celebrative Stickers.

With this solidarity card it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects.

It is also possible to receive your autographed copy with a dedication from the artist, visit the official Cisco website https://www.ciscovox.it/prodotto/figurina-celebrativa-di-cisco-a-scopo-benefico-a-sostegno-dei-progetti-in-madagascar/
