BLACK LIVES MATTER IN MILAN

Across the Atlantic Ocean but in reverse… Beyond the words of essayist Paul Gilroy and artist Johny Pitts, the Black Lives Matter movement shouts <STOP Police Violence… STOP Racism>. In Milan as in Minneapolis. Black and white frames that leave the beauty of the melting pot in my mind… Time ago Italian the band Almamegretta sang “Athena was black”… Today it’s right to remember our common history so as not to make mistakes again.

MILAN, DECEMBER 12… 1969-2019

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Memories and faces cut the darkness of the darkest Past. Men and women whisper the sad chronicle of a bombing. Milanese civil society once again remembers the citizens who were slaughtered by extreme-right violence. In Piazza Fontana people loudly condemn fascism. The public speakers speak. The flags flap. Eyes fire up. Another December 12 adds new memories to the heart of the city.

#BREMAIN

LON 019_146 72

When politicians in bad faith play with the life of people, some men and women rise up against their lies. “Bremainers” or “Remainers” spend time every day in front of Westminster Hall trying to fight the widespread lack of information that is behind the outcome of the Brexit referendum. As Altiero Spinelli wrote in the Manifesto di Ventotene in 1941, only a free and united Europe will be able to fight against social inequalities and privileges. This series of pics is dedicated to all the gallant fighters I meet in a sunny late January morning in London. (shots taken with FujiFilm X30 e Fuji X100)
