Via del Pratello, Bologna. May 29, 2021.
After years of resistance, a neighborhood with a strong popular connotation and a revolutionary mentality, known for being a symbol of anti-fascism and for the fight to the right to housing in the 90s, surrenders to the gentrification that began years ago. The red star, the symbol of the neighborhood and the workers’ struggle, is removed by the fire brigade after a municipal interrogation by a far-right party. Now the neighborhood is ready for the new tenants: rich students, tourists and middle/upper class people.
