(en) [Italy] Project "Torce nella notte" By ANA (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 31 May 2020 08:36:03 +0300


The project "Torce nella notte" ("Torches in the night") was born to keep alive the memory of people who changed the history of humanity, often sacrificing their own lives. To keep that hope alive, like a glow in the darkness. The characters I speak of are: without national pride, timeless and without gender. The idea was born during the siege of Afrin. The Rojava revolution marked me and I want to do my part, so I started to write and paint. ---- The title of the project was inspired by Virgilia D'Andrea's prose autobiography. Initially, this book gave me many names related to the development of the project. In a second moment, the project grew considerably beyond my original intentions, because each subject is linked to another, they are connected by a red thread in the struggle and immortality. Immortality will last as long as they are remembered and their fight will continue as long as we continue their battles.

Excluding one of them seemed unfair to me; this work will probably never end, so i am also looking for collaboration with people from different countries. I am trying to spread the fundamental issues of internationalism, libertarian thinking, gender equality, anti-militarism and social ecology. And about the importance of the fight against the capital Hydra and the heteropatriarchy. I want to tell the forgotten stories of unknown characters, trying to humanize them as much as possible.

I don't want to talk about ineffable heroes, but about human beings who changed the history of humanity. I believe that the revolution does not necessarily need blatant gestures or flashy flags, but consistency, humility and good intentions. As anarchist partisan Lorenzo Orsetti said: "Every storm begins with a single drop. We can all be that drop ". We must not allow other people to tell us that we are powerless, useless. We can all do something. The results are unlikely to be immediately evident, so don't be motivated by vain personal returns. Most of the characters I speak of die before they see their "dreams come true", but they make this Earth a better place. It is a long and complicated road, but it is the only way to go.

I choose characters from historical times and the present to raise awareness of the comrades who are fighting NOW. With special attention to the Internationalist Revolution of Rojava, which I consider the engine of our revolution. Perhaps, as Bookchin argued, it doesn't work, but there is no alternative, capitalism is leading us to an inevitable mass suicide, so we have to try. With this project, I am trying to make my contribution to the Revolution not only with propaganda, but also with an economic contribution. The proceeds of the painting will be donated to the International Commune of Rojava. I sent them the first bank transfer a few weeks ago.
