E’ primavera, la mia intervista a fumetti a Antonio Negri, nella sua edizione in inglese a cura della Red Quill Books (Canada). Come anche per North Pole Alaska (Caro Babbo Natale... in italiano), il titolo quasi mi piace di più in questa edizione.
"I’m rather old now... Claudio has given me back my youth. He interpreted the years when I fought, with joy, together with a multitude of comrades, for a generous idea of democracy. Claudio knows how to show the energy, the wisdom and the hope of that epoch..."
Revolutionary, philosopher, best-selling author, political prisoner and one-time exile, Antonio Negri is today considered one of the world’s most influential radicals. His long-standing participation in political struggle and his contemporary analysis of social movements have reshaped the way we view resistance and the potential for revolution in an age of globalization. Claudio Calia takes us on an intimate visit to Negri’s Venice home as we sit amidst busts of Lenin, communist propaganda, and the ghosts of 1968. A truly insightful book that traces the connections between Negri’s revolutionary experiences and his most recent thinking on "multitudes". Beautifully illustrated and elegantly narrated, the book is both indispensible to the beginner yet a must-have for readers already familiar with Negri’s works.

Interview in Venice
Trans. by: Jason Francis Mc Gimsey
[...] Calia’s aesthetic is strongly marked by the experience of punk rock and its attendant visual styles.He draws high-contrast black-and-white images that resemble nothing so much as graffiti or street art. His human figures are often quasi-geometrical silhouettes, partially filled in with facial and bodily features, which remind the reader of Keith Haring’s vibrant graffiti paintings, while his backgrounds are defined spatially by perpendicular hatching and crosshatching familiar from the daily comics pages of newspapers.[...]
