"In un paese di eroi, navigatori, poeti e santi, nel
nostro vocabolario del terzo millennio andrà recuperato l'uso della
parola libertà. Nuda. Senza suffissi ruffiani. Senza aliti di partito.
Ognuno la declinerà con il proprio cuore e le proprie viscere. Per
me, per esempio, libertà è mia figlia: che cresca in un paese non
più assediato, non più ammalato. Senza bisogno di santi né di eroi".
"GirodiVite" in the Net is called GiroNet.Our address is http:\\www.ser-tel.it\girodivite\default.htm.
In the Net you can find the articles published on the past issues of
the magazine and those that we were not able to publish for lack of
space. On issue n. 46 (September 1998) you can find articles concerning
jobs, unemployement and the problem regarding the Social and Economic
development of the South: an interview of Cettina Raudino on the so
called "socially useful jobs"; an investigation conducted
by the "New Founded Italian Communist" party on the large
phenomenon of the jobs off the books in Catania; a conference held in
Catania on work and on information. Our protest against the announced
closure of one of the best musical shows held in Sicily, "Under
the Volcano" in Scordia. An interview to Lucio Tomarchio, who is
one of the managers of the magazine on the Net "Z". An article
concerning the problem of dogs' abandonment during Summer and several
reviews of books published by three new Sicilian editors: Agrapha, Accademia
dei Palici, Edizioni Mercurio. Issue n° 45 has beeen dedicated to the
"Night of poets", a demonstration held in Mascalucia which,
this year as well, has presented some of the best Sicilian poets: you
will find poetry written by Maria Attanasio, Salvo Basso, Carlo Muscetta,
Sebastiano Burgaretta, Nino De Vita etc.
On issue n° 44 (May 1998): an article on the visit to the junior high
school "Enrico Fermi", in Francofonte, of Luciano Violante,
president of the House of the Parliamentary Representatives. The school,
in 1996, had a fire caused by vandals; the national solidarity was mobilized
because the authorities feared an attack coming from the Mafia. The
Italian anti-Mafia association, "Libera", organized a work-camp,
which means that a group of volunteer workers from all parts of Italy
came to the school to begin to work on its restoration . GirodiVite
along with the school's students and teachers participated, at the time,
at the volunteer work-camp in the paintings of the walls and in cleaning
off of all the signs of that violence. An experience that we have written
about on the issue n° 41 of our magazine. This past Summer (1998) the
school has organized a second work-camp and we have repeated the experience
dedicating to it a series of pictures published on our n° 46 issue.
On issue n° 44 we have written about our participation to "Together
for...", a demonstration organized by the associations of volunteer
work in Lentini, the funds collected were all destined to the Childrens'
Association, an organization which encourages the medical research against
Leukemia. In the same issue we also speak of an initiative undertaken
by the association Manitese (Catania) against waste and the illegal
employement of children's labour. We publish a memorial entitled: "bye-bye
Fulvia" in cooperation with the monthly magazine "la Luna"
from Alessandria. Some articles of discussion are dedicated to two books,
one concerning philosophy ("La morale del cavallo" by Ottavio
Cappellani), and one concerning anarchy written by Maria Luisa Berneri.
On the issue n°43 (april 1998) we speak the women's movement in Algeria
and of the theme federalism/localism. We signal out the column GiroMagazines,
with reviews on the magazines: Città d'Utopia, OraLocale, Da qui, eupolis.
On the issue n° 42 (marzo 1998) we still talk about localism. A memorial
for the 30th Anniversary of 1968. The problem of unemployment through
an analysis fo the goverment's projects especially those called "contratti
d'area" (contracts of zones). In "GiroVision" we have
published reviews of videos, comic-strips, books and sounds: there is
"Quattru Sbrizzi" in video, the 1997 poetic Observer. We have
also opened a debate on Chiapas and of the kabbalah's religious idea
In January 1998, GirodiVite published a special issue concerning the
publication of Salvo Basso's book of Sicilian poetry (GirodiVite n°40).
On that occasion some poems were also translated in English by the students
of the "Moncada" High School in Carlentini. We have also published
writings by: Silvana Pirruccello, Gabriella Canfarelli, Pina La Villa,
Sebastiano Leotta and Michele Mangione.
On the Net you can also find the magazine "Risonanze" specialized
in music which comes out every four months; "Città di Città"
a magazine which concentrates its energy towards the historical Sicilian
cities and which is particularly interested on the greatly debated theme
concerning the so called local emerging phenomenon and the new autonomy
of these cities.
