When he was born, MILANOBANDIERE seemed more than it really was – a project born of a “simple” graphic experimentation. Then, in a short time, MILANOBANDIERE turned into something more. It has grown. And as often happens it has grown at the time it was shared (and not just about social networks). It was shared in the same places, physical and otherwise, that it wanted to identify: the counter of a bar, a square, a concert, a club, a video clip.
It has been shared with the people who live, work, build, fight in these neighborhoods, friends and not. Some of them with their testimonies have grasped my own inspirations, others have been inspirational since the beginning. Inside MILANOBANDIERE there are more things than you can see, among others: la ballata del Cerutti, the occupations of the Pirati dei Navigli, the struggles of the neighborhood committees, the Banda dell’Ortica, and the multi-cultural profile of some suburbs. MILANOBANDIERE is all this: a tribute to Milan, which takes so much, perhaps too much, but to which we all gave and owe something.
