In the middle of the upheavals of roaring 1968, while the wave of anti-system, pacifist, revolutionary protest was rising strong all over the globe from America to Europe to Asia, Franco Bonvicini, sitting in a restaurant with friends, created the debut strip of Sturmtruppen, destined to become the world's most famous and most ragtag comic book army, a strip that earned Bonvi the Paese Sera prize for best new artist in Lucca.
The Exhibit, dedicated to the irreverent genius of Bonvi and to the 50th birthday of his soldaten is organised by Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Città and Fondazione Carisbo in partnership with Eredi Bonvicini. This project has been developing for over two years in the thoughts of Bonvi's daughter Sofia, curator of the exhibition together with Claudio Varetto, who opened the Bonvi archives to design and build up a true path of almost 600 square metres right in the heart of Bologna.
