It used to be an ENEL power transformer cabinet. Now it is a ‘non-automatic distributor of courage’. The street artists of ‘Collettivo FX’ from Reggio Emilia painted this mural. It depicts the faces of the four Cotignola-born Righteous heroes Luigi and Anna Varoli, Vittorio and Serafina Zanzi, as well as those of the seven Martyrs of the Senio River executed by a Nazi firing squad in October 1944, of partisan Leno Casadio and local priest Father Stefano Casadio who freed Cotignola from Nazi occupation with the ‘white flag’ scheme, and of young partisan Esiodo Rava.
The mural is a means to raise historical awareness of the key events that led to the Liberation of Cotignola.
