Fumetto Forever Card #25: ALESSANDRA ROSTAGNOTTO!

Romagna forever! Some newspapers have already anticipated our initiative, not even a good piadina was filling the hunger to finally see this design. Finally here it is, unveiled the solidarity Comics Card # 25, dedicated to Secondo Casadei!

“But who, the one who wrote Romagna Mia?”, Yes, he himself. Even if speaking of Secondo limiting himself to just one musical work is really reductive, he was an incredible artist, bringing the folklore of Romagna music to be loved and appreciated in Italy and in the world, a path that, even now, is not at all finished.

More than a thousand recordings, an infinite discography like the dance evenings on the Riviera. The ability, unique more than rare, to know how to make his music universal. We collectors are well aware of feeling the “nostalgia of the past”, of historical albums, stickers, moments and emotions that can be repeated, but never in the same way.

The project was born from an idea of ​​the MEI of Faenza and from the historical Edizioni Musicali Casadei Sonora, thinking that also to Secondo, to his world, to his Romagna, we could dedicate one of our solidarity Comic Card, a proposal that obviously we welcomed with enthusiasm.

We then set off (after all, Romagna is also the land of two-wheeled speed, isn’t it?) To look for a cartoonist who could fully grasp the essence of Secondo Casadei and transform it with a drawing into a figurine. The Piedmontese cartoonist Alessandra Rostagnotto was a precise choice and, after seeing the result, very happy to have contacted her and also that Alessandra made everything possible.

Just by reading her latest graphic novel “Discosogni” (Bao Editions, 2022), we thought that Alessandra, even if not “daughter of Romagna”, could be the right person. The story of Ambra and Giovanni, the two protagonists of his comic, is set on the Riviera, even if the Ligurian one, but it makes no difference; we are sure, thousands of times, even in Sanremo, they have listened to, sang, danced the most famous songs by Casadei. Secondo’s music certainly had no boundaries.

The solidarity card is a tribute to Casadei and to all of Romagna, often synonymous with sun, good food and lots of fun. Whenever possible, our Comics Cards have a sporting reference, which is why Secondo wears the football shirt that, in some way, wants to pay homage to the Romagna team that, no one wants it, has known the flavor of Serie A and also of the Cups European.

The football reference is also linked to the solidarity choice of this card, with the proceeds that will be destined to the Cucine Popolari of Cesena, in the hope that an important reality like this, after Bologna and now Cesena, can also expand to Forlì, Ravenna and all the other cities.

Those who know us know that we love details and that, when we can and can, nothing is given to chance. For this reason, the numbered edition is 206 copies, that 06 is not just accidental, it is a deliberate reference to the year of birth of Secondo Casadei, 1906.

FUMETTO FOREVER CARD #22: GIACOMO TADDEO TRAINI!

Fred Forever! The Comic Card # 22 is a mix of emotions, of memories that seem distant in time, but which on the contrary are alive and strong, in the hearts of fans, fans and all Italians. We are pleased to present the solidarity card of the immense Fred Buscaglione with the Grande Torino shirt.

However, 1949 was an unforgettable year. Tragic, unique, exciting. On the one hand, a football team, Torino, which had been dominating for several years in Italy and also in Europe, disappeared. Perhaps not the strongest team of all time (impossible to make comparisons between different eras) but certainly the most loved, by all, even if the heart is not grenade.

Also in 1949 the musical career of Fred Buscaglione definitely took off, thanks to the creation of the orchestral group Asternovas and hundreds of concerts up and down the boot. While we wept for the Superga massacre, we danced with Fred, with the city of Turin in our hearts.

The idea of ​​creating a supportive cartoon figurine of Fred was born thanks to the collaboration with Giacomo Taddeo Traini, author of the graphic novel “Swing, barbera and Fred” (Edizioni Becco Giallo, 2022), on the centenary of the birth of the great Buscaglione . Giacomo enthusiastically responded to our proposal and created the perfect sticker, in full harmony with the intent of the project, Fred’s light-hearted gaze, the Grande Torino shirt, in the background the symbols of the city Turin. The edition of the figurine, 149, has a precise meaning.

An important partner of the initiative is the MEI in Faenza, the Meeting of Independent Labels has always carried out an incredible job of enhancing and promoting Italian music. Involving them in the project was not just a pleasure, almost a duty.

FRED FOR MADAGASCAR!

FumettoForever Card #16: MASSIMO CAVEZZALI!

You’ll never swap alone! Our solidarity stickers have reached 50 releases, could we not celebrate this milestone with something extraordinary? We are thrilled to announce the Comic Card # 16 solidarity card, created by the legendary Massimo Cavezzali!

Massimo Cavezzali is synonymous with the history of Italian humorous comics, linked to the world of strips but not only. We loved him in the stories of the Dolline, the Dio Spa, Ava but also in his comic biographies on the great musicians, the one on Vasco Rossi is memorable and highly sought after. Right in this period, Cavezzali is in bookstores and comic shops with the new work “Comic submarine” (Vololibero Edizioni), the opportunity was too tempting not to try to contact him and his response was incredible, we thank him for this.

Our Comic Card solidarity stickers always have a sporting connotation, in this case it was easy, John, Paul, George and Ringo portrayed as Liverpool FC footballers. Four unpublished drawings made by Cavezzali for our edition.

In the beginning we had thought of making a single card, but Max’s drawings were too beautiful to combine them and therefore it was decided to make a monumental edition of 4 cards + postcards. Each of them is limited edition and numbered to 99 copies. We have also decided to add the number 50 behind our logo to celebrate this splendid achievement.

Consequently, the numbering restarts from 1 to 99 for each different solidarity card:
. #16/1 John Lennon
. #16/2 Paul McCartney
. #16/3 George Harrison
. #16/4 Ringo Starr

The set of 4 solidarity cards Fumetto Card # 16 will be presented in an exclusive preview at the Bologna Disco, Figurine and Comic Book Fair on 27/28 November 2021 at BolognaFiere, an event organized by Kolosseo.

FumettoForever Card #8: DAVIDE AURILIA!

Stickers, music and comics! A mix of passions that goes well with our initiatives. We are happy to announce the new Comic Card, if # 7 featured a band that doesn’t actually exist (or maybe yes?), # 8 talks about a historical name of Italian music, the Turinese PERTURBAZIONE!

We got the idea from the same band, being the authors of the splendid graphic novel WHO REALLY KNOW (Bao Publishing 2021), the drawings instead of DAVIDE AURILIA whom we thank for his willingness to get involved in our initiative. Perturbazione could very well be one of our FanForever, instead they are in the collection of the cards on the comic, they fit perfectly, don’t you think?

The card partly incorporates the drawing of Aurilia that concludes the volume, the Perturbazione have accepted our proposal to “play along” and to present themselves with the colors of their favorite teams, so as to continue the sporting theme that distinguishes all our solidarity figurines. Vintage 70s shirts, without sponsors, of Torino, Inter and Foggia.

Official presentation on Sunday 27 June at the Turin Disco Fair, Piazza Madama Cristina, organized by Kolosseo. It will be a great opportunity to also meet the members of the band, buy the solidarity card, but also the volume and musical productions, merchandising, all over the world Perturbazione!

FumettoForever Card #7: SERGIO ALGOZZINO!

“In stickers we trust, in prog we trust!“. We are happy to announce the seventh solidarity card dedicated to the world of comics, thanks to Sergio Algozzino and his latest work “THE ONIRIC FACTORY OF SOUND”, a splendid graphic novel published by Feltrinelli Comics, set in the 70s, when next to the claims of the youth movements, a genre was born, the Italian progressive rock, admired and adored by thousands of fans also abroad.

Milano, the youth, the 70s, the terrorism, but above all the music. Easy to be overwhelmed by the images of the story that is invented, the band does not actually exist (or maybe it does?) But surely Algozzino’s passion for music is real and strong. After all Sergio has already been the protagonist of several comic books on the greats of music, from Fabrizio De Andrè to Ozzy Osbourne. Of course he is also known and appreciated for his works on the monthly Linus and on the characters of Nellie Bly and Dylan Dog.

The card is a tribute to the comic band, from which it takes its title, and being in Milano in the 70s, also to the two Milanese teams with the shirts of the time, the boys of the group with that of AC Milan and Tiziana, the singer, with that of FC Inter. “The Devils” and “the Beloved”, after all.

It is almost obvious to involve Sergio Algozzino in an evening where the stickers meet the music through comics. In fact, the Sicilian author will take the stage of the BologninAlive next June 8 to let us listen to the songs of The Oniric Factory of Sound (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhCVnxfIDkM), accompanied by the Bolognese singer Giulia Mei. So does the band exist or does it not exist? Who knows, to find out you will have to come to Bologna and have the book and our card signed. FREE ENTRY. It will also be the first official presentation of the volume, released in early 2021.
