Gunilla Unger gave a touch of Scandinavian style to the Mondo Beat Movement

Gunilla Unger gave a touch of Scandinavian style to the Mondo Beat Movement.


On June 15, 1967, in the early afternoon, Melchiorre Gerbino dissolved the Mondo Beat Movement in the Crota Piemunteisa, the same tavern where, exactly 8 months earlier, the Movement had been founded. The dissolution was official, since it was done in the presence of writers and intellectuals who had come there for the purpose. And it happened while the city echoed the sirens of the police cars that searched for Beats and Provos, who in the meantime had fun in the June sea, hundreds of kilometers from Milan.
On that occasion, everyone of those who had attended the event of the dissolution of the Movement, asked for 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, nor could it be distributed by ourselves, but had to be distributed through normal channels, therefore, it had to publish advertisements, and I was contrary to it. (I will remind here that my decision was unappealable, as I was the responsible director and owner of the Magazine and no one else had any kind of legal participation in it). But then these people asked for the publication of at least one more issue of the Magazine, to leave the memory of the military destruction. But I have not seen the need for this either, since newspapers and magazines, in Italy and abroad, wrote about the destruction of Mondo Beat. But these people have insisted (they wanted to publish their articles in the famous Mondo Beat magazine). In the end, I accepted, not to be rude, but, to emphasize my disagreement, I declared that I did not want to prepare this last issue, while I had conceived and prepared all the previous ones.
Having to assign this task to someone, as all the capable youths in the Movement were dispersed or were in prison, I could not assign this task to anyone else, but to Gianni De Martino, the Vatican spy that the secret services kept in my ribs (of course, not I suspected he was a spy). So, the day after the Movement was dissolved, I presented Gianni De Martino to Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, a famous publisher. I had known Feltrinelli the same day of the destruction of Barbonia City and, without my request, he had declared of his availability to support the publication and distribution of issues of the magazine Mondo Beat. Nor had I suspected 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 I was very noble at the time of Mondo Beat.
I will now comment on this latest issue of the Magazine, after which, in conclusion, I will describe the Vatican's interference in the history of Mondo Beat and the Zionists' interference in the history of the Contestation.

What to say about this last issue of Mondo Beat magazine?

Page 1
there is an article by Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, "The strike was successful" (Lo sciopero è riuscito). With this article, Feltrinelli tried to dress the longhairs of Mondo Beat in the uniforms of the Red Army (he played the communist, while working for the Mossad) but this article has historic value because Feltrinelli has described how the youths of Mondo Beat have pledged in Florence after the November 1966 flood.
Here, an excerpt from the article by Feltrinelli

The youths of Mondo Beat were the first rescuers after the Florence Flood
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 the young people of Mondo Beat have worked as volunteers for more than a month, without receiving compensation and, in their example, hundreds of other young people, from Italy and abroad, would have rushed to Florence, to save historical documents and works of art of universal heritage. In Florence, the young people of Mondo Beat wrote the most noble page in the history of the Movement).

Page 9, there is a pompous statement by Andrea Valcarenghi about his conscientious objection to mandatory military service. This ended in a farce because, once imprisoned and put under psychological pressure, he not only wore the military uniform, but also ended up collaborating with the Italian secret services. So, later, when Melchiorre Gerbino was traveling the world, the Italian secret services asked Andrea Valcarenghi to write a book to mystify the history of the Mondo Beat Movement, of which Valcarenghi had been a minor character, and in this book, among the many lies, Andrea Valcarenghi stated that Melchiorre Gerbino sold the magazine Mondo Beat to the editor Giangiacomo Feltrinelli and fled with the money, causing a fracture in the Mondo Beat Movement and its decline. This book was titled "Underground: a pugno chiuso!" (Underground: with a clenched fist!). It was hugely publicized, it lacked little that it was included among the texts of the compulsory school.
Now, first of all, I want to state that the Mondo Beat Movement has never undergone decline, but it has always been growing. This the reason why the Moro government had to resort to the judiciary and the military to annihilate it.
And then, I want to explain what happened with Mondo Beat magazine. In fact, Giuseppe Simone, a wine merchant in Milan, who had been classmate of Melchiorre Gerbino in the secondary schools of Calatafimi, their hometown, had realized that Melchiorre Gerbino had no money to return to his travels. So he sent him a mutual friend, Giuseppe Bica, 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 price, 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, assisted them at the time of the notarial deed. And so it was how 4 Sicilian friends from Calatafimi saved the honor of the magazine Mondo Beat and delivered it over to the myth.

Under the sign "CHIEDIAMO I DIRITTI CIVILI" (We want to affirm civil rights) there are Melchiorre Gerbino and Andrea Valcarenghi (with glasses) on the occasion of Mondo Beat rally of April 8, 1967. At that date, Melchiorre Gerbino had not yet understood that Andrea Valcarenghi was a malicious idiot and let him stay by his side.

The idiot, piece of shit, Andrea Valcarenghi

Andrea Valcarenghi, the son of a billionaire, wanted to play the revolutionary, but ended up trapped by Italian secret services, which would order him to perform the most shameful operations. At one point, he was sent to worship Guru Rajneesh, aka Osho. Those were the days of the Cold War, when the Soviet secret services captured, in the Western world, the weak children of rich and reduced them under their command, as they did, for example, with Patricia Hearst. So, to avoid this situation, the capitalists have sent the weak children of the rich to India, to worship the gurus. Andrea Valcarenghi has been in the number. Being an energetic idiot, Andrea Valcarenghi has served both, the Italian secret services and the Indian gurus.

Page 12 , the back cover, there is a satirical drawing by Guido Crepax. With this, Guido Crepax, a famous artist, has joked on Corriere della Sera, who usually wrote nonsense about the Beats, for example, that they had the habit of playing at dice to select the ones who would make sex with the underage girls who have frequented Mondo Beat.

Otherwise, on the content of this last issue, there is to say that those who had insisted on its publication, and who published their articles there, in these articles, they showed great indignation towards the Italian government, because of the destruction of the structures of Mondo Beat, but, being foreign to the Contestation, they did not write about it, and they had no perception of the imminent spread of the Contestation through the mass. So I don't want to bore the reader by commenting further.

Good games don't last long. Mondo Beat, from its foundation to its military destruction, lasted 8 months, which was a very long time, if you consider how magnificent was this game.
And when I analyze my part in the history of the Contestation, I am of course proud to have formulated its models and tested them in the field, but I think that the most honorable action I did was to leave the scene when it was time, without delay and forever.
