Fan Forever Card #18: FRANCESCO DI GIACOMO!

Italian Rock Forever! There are bands and artists that the whole world envies us, we are the homeland of opera and light music, but also in rock, especially in progressive, our school is loved internationally. Not one, but several artists, not one, but several bands. Area, Pfm, etc. and the Banco di Mutuo Soccorso. The FanFover Card # 18 is dedicated to the splendid voice of the Roman band, Francesco Di Giacomo!

Francesco, born in Sardinia, moved to Rome as a child and over the years he will be able to savor all its beauty, including sporting passion. Disappeared in a car accident in 2014, he was a great lover of sports, his wife Antonella told us that he often got up in the middle of the night when the Olympics or other competitions were taking place in distant countries and therefore at unlikely times. He was also a big fan of AS Roma.

The solidarity card represents him as a footballer for the “Giallorossi” club, 1971/72 season. The choice, as always is not accidental, in September 1971 Di Giacomo, during the Caracalla festival, comes into contact with the band that at the beginning of 1972 will take the final name of Banco di Mutuo Soccorso.

The color of the shirt, white, is a reference to the stickers of that season, as the Roma players are photographed. But we thought it would be a shame not to see Francesco also in the classic club shirt and so we made a variant. The solidarity cards, issued in 199 numbered and limited copies, are therefore from 1 to 100 with the 1971/72 shirt and from 101 to 199 with the more generic yellow and red shirt.

The initiative was made possible thanks to the friends of Music Day – Fiera del Disco in Rome and is carried out in collaboration with MEI, we will continue to celebrate Francesco also at the 2022 edition of the Independent Label Meetings at the beginning of October 2022. A heartfelt thanks to Antonella Caspoli, Francesco’s wife, for giving us the opportunity to realize this little dream of paying homage to a great protagonist of Italian rock. Thanks also to Fabio Massimo Iaquone, author of the splendid photo from which the solidarity card was made.

FRANCESCO DI GIACOMO FOR MADAGASCAR!

FanForever Card #5: SIMONE TOMASSINI!

Long live the Italian rock! With great pleasure we announce the 5th FanForever card: Simone Tomassini aka Simone. The Lombard artist has been our point of reference for many years in the Italian music scene, the author of many songs that have remained in the hearts of many fans and in recent days with the new song “C’hanno provato”.

According to Simone himself, the sticker refers to the “great Como” of the late 1980s, protagonist in Serie A and the singer’s birthplace, a team well remembered by many football fans. It is also a small tribute to remember Stefano Borgonovo.

The FanForever Card will be available from 20 October on the occasion of Simone’s double concert in Milan at the Memo Live Club.

In absolute preview at MEI (Independent Label Meeting), Faenza, on 3 and 4 October 2020, where our Association will have its own space, thanks to the invitation received by the organization.

SIMONE FOR S’APRE ONLUS: the entire proceeds will be donated to the S’Apre non-profit organization in Cassano d’Adda (MI) to support their activities in Italy and around the world.

FanForever Card #4: STEVE LEE!

It is with great emotion that we announce the 4th FanForever Card: Steve Lee, lead singer of Gotthard, 10 years after his death due to an accident while he was touring the USA on a motorcycle. Steve had a big heart and even if you don’t notice it in this photo, his smile and his will to live was contagious. As was his incredible voice, one of the greatest in the contemporary rock scene.

The initiative was made available thanks to collaboration of the family and Flavio Hochstrasser, a close friend and legal representative of Steve’s rights worldwide. Thanks also to Barbara Caserta, photographer and journalist, fundamental in the preparation of this small project.

Steve was passionate about football, we thought of making the sticker with the Swiss national team shirt because Gotthard is perhaps the band that most of all brought Switzerland to the world, Steve embodied this great country at best, he spoke English, Italian, French it’s German. The Gotthard band was founded in 1992, which is why we decided to take inspiration from the USA94 World Cup stickers.

The FanForever Card will be available from 5 October (10th anniversary of his death) and presented in world premiere at MEI (Meeting Etichette Indipendenti), Faenza, on 3 and 4 October 2020, where our Association will have its own space, thanks the invitation received by the organization.

Faenza and Romagna is not a random choice, the last Italian tour of the Gotthard with Steve Lee on vocals made a stop at the Vidia Club in Cesena. 11 years after that date (24 October 2009) is another way to remember an incredible concert, as Gotthard was and still is.

STEVE LEE FOR MADAGASCAR: the entire proceeds will be donated to the Mondobimbi Village in Tulear (Madagascar), where our Association is involved in the international campaign ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA – STICKER RAISING FOR MADAGASCAR; thanks to Steve’s family for responding enthusiastically to this aspect as well

We are happy and proud to announce the new FanForever Card, which will be released shortly after the first one created for Stefano “Cisco” Bellotti, and we also hope this will be appreciated by our members, by fans of stickers, by fans of the founder of TIMORIA.

Omar Pedrini naturally as Brescia’s player, given the historical great passion for the blue-white colors of his city. Not only that, the choice of the year is linked to the date of birth of the “rock uncle” and therefore while Omar was born, his favorite team played in Serie A.

The FanForever Card is printed in a limited number of 300 copies, to have your own copy a contribution of 5.00 euros is required. It is possible to order multiple copies together.

All profits will be donated to the fundraiser in aid of the Cassano d’Adda Hospital (Milan), an event connected to the Fair “online” from 22 to 24 May on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/580106819282997/
