5. Rebellion

REBELLION is the fifth and final chapter (without PROLOGUE and EPILOGUE) of the comic We want everything based on the book of the same name by Nani Ballerini.

This chapter, as in the book, tracks the events in Turin on July 3 of '69, in what became known as the Battle of Corso Traiano (la Rivolta di Corso Traiano). The demonstration organized by the workers in the previous chapter (assembly) turns into violent street fights with the police around the Mirafiori plant, especially in Corso Traiano, but also in other areas of Turin, such as Nicelino.

Unlike the previous chapter, here action is dominant. Because the narrative in the book is very dense, I have tried to draw the main points and build an escalation -sacrifing however (small) episodes and details that may seem important to some.

Another problem I encountered was the historical precision of details such as the buildings on the streets mentioned, the uniforms / cars / equipment of the carabinieri etc. Where I could not find appropriate photographs from the internet, I used material from the film Lavorare con lentezza (especially for some scenes in Nicelino), from google maps as well as more general pictures of barricades and street fights with policemen from May 68 and Italian Autonomy.

It was characterized by many as the last invasion of the working class into the sky. Last ... let's hope until the next one ...
