On Monday 15, no none thinks the country's kitchens will be open but on Monday 15 April we will be saying a final farewell to our comrade and friend at the town's cemetery at 4.00, to gather her into our earth and to sing "Bella Ciao" and "Figli dell'Officina" with for the last time. We'll meet up for a glass of red wine at the Centro di Documentazione Franco Salomone, just to to remember her, even though we'll never forget her, sharing a glass of red wine to her strength and her courage, and just like she always wanted, to freedom and revolution.
An activist since a very young age, as rigorous as she was non-dogmatic, Silvia founded the FdCA branch in Fano in 1995, where she had made a great contribution to the spread of anarchist communist ideas and for the construction of tools for struggle and resistance through libertarian praxis in the student struggles, feminist struggles, and those of the precarious, anti-fascists and anti-rascists. When she moveed from Fano to Lausanne with her comrade Ismael, she became a cooperator at the Centre Internationale de Recherches sur l'Anarchisme (CIRA) and a member of the Organisation Socialiste Libertaire (OSL), through which she had participated at the local and international no-global mobilizations such as those at Evian (2003) and Davos (2003); she has participated as the FdCA delegate at the first meeing of EuroAnarkismo which took place in Paris (at 2012) and in the international anarchist encounter at St-Imier in (August 2012).
