Bologna 12 giugno 2011 - Possibile che non ci ricordiamo più neanche delle Sturmtruppen? Possibile che a 16 anni dalla morte, quando fu travolto da un’auto, qui a Bologna, dov’era giunto nella seconda metà degli anni ’60, questo tempo miseramente smemorato ottenebri, tra i giovani, persino Bonvi, genio purissimo e scapigliato del fumetto, incontenibile, inclassificabile, impetuoso, trascinante, ‘folle’, il creatore delle più squinternate e ridicolizzate truppe naziste, ma anche di Cattivik e del detective Nick Carter ? Articoli correlati

E’ una quieta mattina nella casa dove i due figli nati da Bonvi e da sua moglie, un medico, Maria Angela Villani (‘Moira’, per i due ragazzi), vivono con la madre. Parliamo del papà morto a soli 54 anni, del tempo (poco, purtroppo) che essi hanno passato, bimbi, accanto a lui. Della sua energia. Del suo essere bambino tra i bambini, come un irresistibile, tenero monello. Sofia, la più grande, architetto, è nata nel 1984, ed è la più loquace. Francesco, il fratello, studi superiori e inclinazione al marketing, ha cinque anni di meno, è più silenzioso, come più chiuso, ma possiede nettezza e prontezza di giudizi. E’ lei che racconta, è lui che, quasi timidamente, con frasi brevi, sintetizza certi concetti cruciali. Perché c’è sempre quella cosa nell’aria: com’è possibile dimenticarsi di Bonvi? Qual è il primo ricordo legato a suo padre? «Un piccolo fatto — risponde Sofia — che mi è sempre stato raccontato in famiglia. Nella mia culla papà mise una matita e una pistola. Erano gli obiettivi che voleva trasmettermi. Disegnare e combattere il perbenismo borghese, i luoghi comuni, l’ipocrisia, il potere, la sopraffazione». E qualche cosa di più diretto, di vissuto vicino a lui? «La generosità. E’ stato un grande artista e un grande padre. Le mattine che mi accompagnava a scuola ci fermavamo sempre dal cartolaio, lui disegnava e scarabocchiava sempre, e comprava una montagna di matite anche per me. Se io ero incerta su quale scegliere, lui mi ripeteva: ‘Nell’indecisione, entrambi’. Sembrava davvero un bambino fra i bambini, un capo-monello, ma avevamo un rapporto da grandi, litigava con me come con un adulto». E’ impegnativo essere figli di Bonvi ? «Sì, senz’altro — qui interviene Francesco —. Nel senso che in giro ci sono giovani della nostra età che fanno di tutto per dirti che sono figli di padri famosi. E’ un altro segno della totale pochezza in mezzo a cui viviamo. Noi, invece, non lo diciamo, non vogliamo passare per quelli che si vantano o vivono di meriti che non hanno». Che cos’è stata la sua morte ?
