La Comune di MIlano

La comune di Milano is a campaign against the political madness of the municipality of Milano (Italy). Since is a campaign against an insitution, we used the user name of the campaign, instead our identity. Usually we make signs like the one the municipalyty makes, we put them oj official sites, with a disturbimg message: the municipality excuse itself for insane political action like squatting rom people, or cutting public schools founds, or putting curfew in neighborhoods where immigration is high.

How did/does this project benefit author (authors/makers of the project)?
As activists we are happy to do something for our town.

Tell us something about your view on communication. What is your / your organisation's / initiative's (visual) communication philosophy?
We made a logo similar to the official one. We create signs similar to the official ones put by municipality on the streets. We would like to subvertise and distract official communication. And in this way push people to think.

What about the process of creating this work? Please describe it.
We started with a sign in via Padova, an neighborhood where there are a lot of immigrates and where, due to a murder, Comune di Milano introduced a curfew. We made also some videos. The last one is a remake of the famous Amici miei (Monicelli, 1975, with Togranzzi). We put the audio of an episode on new images, about a project of gentrification in Milano. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVHKoOCpgGE
