Appendix to the history of Mondo Beat

by Melchiorre Paolo Gerbino
- the director of 'Mondo Beat' magazine
- the historical leader of the Contestation


In the early afternoon of June 15, Melchiorre Gerbino dissolved the Mondo Beat Movement in the Crota Piemunteisa, Via Pontaccio, the same tavern where, exactly 8 months earlier, the Movement had been founded. The dissolution of the Movement was official, since half a dozen writers and intellectuals, who had gathered for the event, attended. On that occasion, everyone who attended the event requested the publication of more issues of Mondo Beat magazine. I was against it, because the Magazine, without the support of the Movement, no longer had any valence, and in addition had to be distributed through normal channels, rather than from ourselves, so it had to publish advertisements to survive, and I was absolutely against it. (I want to point out here that my decision, once made, was irrevocable, as I was the responsible editor and owner of Mondo Beat magazine and no one else had any shareholding). But all those present asked for the publication of at least one more issue of the Magazine, to leave memory of the military destruction of Mondo Beat. But I didn't see the need either, since newspapers and magazines, in Italy and abroad, wrote about the destruction of Mondo Beat. From my point of view, keeping silent would have been smarter (because more dramatic), waiting for the students' contestation to explode when the schools reopened in early October. But those people insisted (and the reason they insisted was because they wanted to publish their articles in the famous Mondo Beat magazine). In the end, I yielded to their insistence, but, to emphasize my disagreement, I declared that I did not want to deal with the preparation of this last issue of the Magazine, while I had conceived and prepared all the previous ones.
Having to entrust this task to someone, being all valiant youths of the Movement dispersed or in prison, I could not entrust this task to anyone else, but Gianni De Martino, that Catholic homosexual, if you remember, who insulted Jack Kerouac because he got drunk instead of thinking about Jesus. This Catholic homosexual was actually a spy of the Vatican, who was kept at my ribs by the secret services (of course, I didn't suspect he was a spy). So, the day after the dissolution of the Movement, that is to say on June 16, I introduced him to Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, a famous editor, who had said about his availability to print and distribute issues of Mondo Beat magazine. Nor did I suspect that Giangiacomo Feltrinelli was a Mossad agent. As Cicero says: "The nobler a man, the harder it is for him to suspect inferiority in others" - and Melchiorre Gerbino was a very noble man in the days of Mondo Beat.
In the present reconstruction of the history of Mondo Beat, there is a chapter about the interference of the Zionists in the course of the Contestation, that you can read later, here you can read about the relationship between Melchiorre Gerbino and Giangiacomo Feltrinelli regarding Mondo Beat magazine.
To finish with this premise, it must be said that this seventh and last issue of the Magazine would have appeared a month and a half after the dissolution of the Movement. Melchiorre Gerbino did not take part in the preparation and saw it after publication. As you can see, the layout is ugly, say funerary, since it was conceived by the poor devil Gianni De Martino. Of all the articles written by those intellectuals who have insisted for publication, none has any value, as they would all have written pages and pages of vibrant protests due to the destruction of Mondo Beat's structures and none of them would have understood that the structures of Mondo Beat were intended to the affirmation of the Contestation and sooner or later would have been sacrificed for this purpose. So, I will not comment on their writings, because if at that time circumstances have forced me to waste time with them, now it is no longer the case.

On this page there is an article by the publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, "Lo sciopero è riuscito" (The strike was successful). With this article, Feltrinelli tried to dress the longhairs of the Mondo Beat Movement in the uniforms of the Red Army (he played the role of a vanguard communist, while working for the Mossad), but this article has historical value because Feltrinelli described how the youths of Mondo Beat have pledged in Florence after the flood in November 1966. Here, an extract

The youths of the Mondo Beat Movement were the first rescuers to rush to Florence after the flood in November 1966
Giangiacomo Feltrinelli on the rescue of Florence by the youth of Mondo Beat

Giangiacomo Feltrinelli wrote: "To say that longhairs do not want to work isn't true. We saw them in Florence after the flood, when they were doing everything possible to remove rubble, mud or debris, when the representatives of the government, the civil servants, did not dare to walk in the streets not to dirty their shoes".
Note that Mondo Beat youths have volunteered for over a month, without receiving any compensation, and following their lead, hundreds of other youths, from Italy and abroad, would have rushed to Florence to rescue historical documents and works of art of universal heritage. In Florence, the young people of Mondo Beat wrote the noblest page in the history of the Movement.

On the same page 1, and then continuing on page 2 and page 3, there is an article, "Milano in stato di assedio" (Milan in a state of siege) by Silla Ferradini. Like for the previous issue, where 3 Ferradini's writings were published, Ferradini used to deliver his articles anonymously, since he had no good relationship with Gerbino and feared to be trashed if Gerbino knew that the articles were from him. In fact, Melchiorre Gerbino, who was living the radical season of the Contestation, did not like Silla Ferradini, who manifested accommodating attitudes towards power.
In the previous issue, 2 Ferradini's writings were signed "OM" and 1 "A. OM" (here). Now, in this last issue, Ferradini would have signed his article "Ohm".
Gianni De Martino, who had the task of preparing the layout of this issue, published Ferradini's article by putting "Gianni" before "Ohm", as signature, to have people believe that he was the author of it and, consequently, the author also of the 3 articles of the previous issue which were signed OM and A.OM, and everyone, including Gerbino, had believed it.
But in 2017, that is to say 50 years after the time of Mondo Beat, Melchiorre Gerbino, trying to find the family name of that Enea who created the Mondo Beat and Onda Verde logos, family name that he forgot, he made several phone calls and, among the others, he also called Silla Ferradini. As on that occasion the two found a nice way to entertain each other, they had a long conversation and so Ferradini confessed to Gerbino that he was the author of those 4 articles, signed "OM", "A.OM" and "Ohm". And Ferradini certainly told the truth.
Why else would Gianni De Martino not have signed these articles with his full name, if not because he feared that Silla Ferradini would claim authorship? Gianni De Martino has often shown that he is an impostor, currently, in 2020, he claims to have been co-founder of Mondo Beat (!). No wonder he also claims that he was the author of Silla Feradini's writings.
Reconstructing the history of Mondo Beat, I wrote a chapter on Gianni De Martino, because his personal history is exemplary to show to what extent the Vatican can exploit persons sodomized by priests who were their teachers, and how these persons, in time, would behave in a devious, if not criminal, way.

On pages 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, there are articles of vibrant protests, due to the destruction of Mondo Beat's structures, written by those intellectuals who participated in the dissolution ceremony of the Mondo Beat Movement.

Given that the Sixties were years of optimistic atmosphere, and given that Melchiorre Gerbino is optimistic by nature, it shouldn't be amazing that he believed that Andrea Valcarenghi's intelligence, which was not brilliant, would improve over the years. But Melchiorre Gerbino was wrong, since Andrea Valcarenghi would have proved how the idiot gets worse over time.

Andrea Valcarenghi, how the stupid gets worse over time
Andrea Valcarenghi

In fact, it would have been enough to show this photo to show the degree of stupidity achieved by Andrea Valcarenghi in his life, if there were not two types of stupid, the good and the malicious, and Andrea Valcarenghi would not have been in the second group, but, unfortunately, he was, so I am forced to write about him because his malicious stupidity has been, over time, damage to the memory of the Mondo Beat Movement.

Melchiorre Gerbino and Andrea Valcarenghi

Under the sign "CHIEDIAMO I DIRITTI CIVILI" (We want to affirm civil rights) are Melchiorre Gerbino and Andrea Valcarenghi (with glasses) on the occasion of the Mondo Beat demonstration of April 8, 1967. On that date, Melchiorre Gerbino was not aware of Valcarenghi's malicious idiocy and allowed him to stand by his side.

Now, going to the point, Andrea Valcarenghi, the son of a billionaire father, who lived himself as a billionaire, wanted to be remembered as a revolutionary. So, when he was called to military service, which was mandatory at the time, Andrea Valcarenghi made a pompous statement on his decision to make the conscientious objection (his statement is published on this page 9). But, put in prison and under pressure, after two weeks, he wore the military uniform. The tragic side of this situation was not that Andrea Valcarenghi wore the military uniform, as he was a minor character in the Mondo Beat Movement and no one had him as a reference, but the tragic was that the secret services bent him to collaboration. So, when the Contestation spread throughout Italy and the Establishment did everything possible to contain it, using all means, from explosion of bombs in banks to defamation in books, Andrea Valcarenghi was ordered by the secret services to declare that Melchiorre Gerbino sold the magazine Mondo Beat to editor Giangiacomo Feltrinelli and fled with the money, causing fractures and decline in the Mondo Beat Movement. This statement was made by Andrea Valcarenghi while Melchiorre Gerbino traveled the world and was not aware of it. Such a defamation was highlighted in Andrea Valcarenghi's book "Underground: a pugno chiuso!" (Underground: with a clenched fist!) and this book received a lot of media attention, I am surprised that they didn't include it in the texts of compulsory school.
After this dirty work, Andrea Valcarenghi was sent to worship guru Rajneesh aka Osho. Indeed, it was the era of the Cold War, when the Soviet secret services captured, in the Western world, the weak children of the rich and reduced them under their command, as they did, for example, with Patricia Hearst, therefore, they were sent by the CIA to India to worship the gurus, to prevent the Soviets from capturing them. Andrea Valcarenghi was one of them and, being the richest and most idiotic of the Italian faithful, guru Rajneesh, who worked for the CIA, paid him particular attention and promoted him as his factotum in Italy.
The most despicable character of the beautiful page that was the youth revolt in the Sixties in Italy, the malicious idiot Andrea Valcarenghi would have served both, the Italian secret services and the Indian guru Rajneesh, or, say, the CIA.

And now I want to say what happened with Mondo Beat magazine and produce documentation on what I say.
Giuseppe Simone, a wine merchant in Milan, who had been a classmate of Melchiorre Gerbino in secondary schools in Calatafimi, their hometown, having realized that Melchiorre Gerbino had no money to go back to his travels, sent Giuseppe Bica, a mutual friend also from Calatafimi, with the proposal to buy Mondo Beat magazine. Melchiorre Gerbino, who had not wanted to sell Mondo Beat magazine to a political party willing to buy it at any cost, agreed to sell it to his friend for little money. Then another mutual friend, also from Calatafimi, Salvatore Scandariato, a lawyer who practiced in Milan, helped them during the notarial act. And that is how 4 Sicilian friends from Calatafimi saved the honor of Mondo Beat magazine and delivered it to myth

Copy of the deed of sale of Mondo Beat magazine

As you can read at the beginning of the notarial deed reproduced above, Mondo Beat magazine was sold on October 17, 1967, while the printing of the last issue of Mondo Beat magazine had taken place, in a print shop of the publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, at the end of July 1967, that is approximately three months before the sale of the magazine. This is enough to demonstrate irrefutably how Melchiorre Gerbino with Giangiacomo Feltrinelli did not compromise in any way with Mondo Beat magazine, because, if he had done so, would not have been able to sell the magazine. Imagine, moreover, if the publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli would have remained inactive, if he were in possession of the famous magazine Mondo Beat! He would certainly have published and distributed it, and most probably internationally, as he was a great specialist in his field (Feltrinelli was the editor who published the worldwide successes "Doctor Zhivago" and "The Leopard").
Regarding Mondo Beat, you can read here about the relationship between Melchiorre Gerbino and Giangiacomo Feltrinelli.

On pages 10 and 11, there are more articles of vibrant protest, written by those intellectuals who attended the ceremony of dissolution of the Mondo Beat Movement.

On this last page, back cover of the issue, there is a satirical drawing by Guido Crepax. With this, Guido Crepax, a famous artist, joked about the Corriere della Sera, who often wrote nonsense on the Beats, for example, that they used to play dice to draw those who would make love with underage girls who attended Mondo Beat.
