WELCOME HOME, PATRICK!

Welcome home Patrick!

Wednesday 26 May 2021

The first event after the lockdown, from “A Skeggia”, the headquarters of Forever Ultras Bologna, the Solidarity Comic Card #5 by Patrick Zaki is presented in collaboration and in support of Amnesty International.

The initiative goes beyond the most optimistic forecasts, not only for the 150 printed copies sold out in a few days, but for the excellent media coverage, both locally and nationally. The main objective was achieved. A second one will be created, also designed by Gianluca Costantini. The colors of Bologna FC are no longer the classic red and blue, but refer to the glorious 60s shirt. The message is clear: we want the Scudetto and the Scudetto is Patrick’s release.

Since then, the two stickers have been taken around Italy and have been published in important newspapers and magazines such as, for example, La Repubblica, Corriere dello Sport and the monthly Linus.

At Osteria dell’Orsa, in Bologna, the great emotion of personally delivering the solidarity cards to Patrick. The choice is not accidental, the Orsa is the last place where Patrick had been before the trip to Egypt and it was a place where he often went. He is also remembered in the graphic novel by Laura Cappon and Gianluca Costantini (Feltrinelli).

Patrick, when he was in Egypt, said he missed the Orsa tagliatelle. Together with Amnesty Bologna we therefore wanted to re-propose that toast and those tagliatelle as if the world had paused in recent years.

Tagliatelle, figurine and a wonderful thing called Freedom, we all often forget its value and importance.

Thanks to Patrick and his girlfriend Reny Iskander for sharing this hour together, where we also talked about football, solidarity, Bologna, sport, travel and much more. Patrick is really one of us, where that “us” is the whole world.

The story doesn’t end here, there are already ideas and projects when Patrick returns to Bologna in September, as well as the creation and printing of the new edition of the solidarity card, which will be different between the first two.

Figurine, tagliatelle and Freedom. Sublime trilogy, welcome back Patrick!

Fumetto Forever Card #5bis: PATRICK ZAKI 2!

“We want the Scudetto! Our championship is the release of Patrick Zaki ”. We were pleasantly surprised by the great success of our Patrick Zaki solidarity card initiative with the Bologna 2020/21 shirt. The 150 copies sold out within a few days. We asked ourselves the question of what to do, our productions have a strong sense of collecting, a reprint was not viable.

So we thought of creating a new, different “figurina”, thanks to the confirmed availability of Gianluca Costantini. This time Patrick wears a legendary shirt for all the Bolognese, 1964/65 season with the Scudetto on the chest, thanks to the unforgettable match won last June at the Olympic Stadium in Rome against Inter.

The message is clear and strong, there is only one championship at the moment: Patrick Free Now.

For this new edition we have also planned a particular print, 150 numbered copies are planned, but it will be an “on demand” production. From today the pre-order starts, interested people can optionally as many copies as they wish, if the number of requests exceeds the expected 150, a higher number will be printed, 200, 300 or whatever will be necessary. Of course always numbered.

With this solidarity card + postcard, it will be possible to support the Adotta Con La Figurina project and the activities of Amnesty International

Fumetto Forever Card #5: PATRICK ZAKI!

FIGURINE FOREVER for PATRICK ZAKI and AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL!

The FumettoForever Card # 5 has an important meaning, we wanted to contribute to the appeal of hundreds of thousands of people who ask for the release of Patrick Zaki, the young activist in prison in Egypt since February 8, 2020. We have joined the campaign promoted by Amnesty International and for this reason the entire proceeds are destined to the Volunteer Organization.

The availability of Gianluca Costantini, one of the most popular cartoonist in the graphic journalism genre and who on many occasions has supported the campaigns for Patrick’s release with his time and his pencil, is fundamental.
Why the Bologna shirt? We want to underline, once again, that Patrick is one of us, he is a citizen of the city of Bologna. Furthermore Patrick is a football fan, he plays well and went when he could to see the matches at the stadium, our hope is to be able to soon deliver him a copy of the card here in Bologna, in His city.

Presentation of the card on Wednesday 26 May at 18.00 at A SKEGGIA, the headquarters of the FOREVER ULTRAS of Bologna, which we thank for their availability, the curve of Bologna has also in the past shown sensitivity on this issue as can also be seen from this banner displayed before of a match.

With this solidarity card + postcard, it will be possible to support the Adotta Con La Figurina project and the activities of Amnesty International
