In fact, on February 26, in full emergency Coronavirus, Chico’s uncle, Gianni Forti, was summoned to the Farnesina for a meeting with the Minister Luigi Di Maio and the Undersecretary of State Riccardo Fraccaro. On that occasion all the aspects useful for the transfer of Chico Forti to Italy in a short time were discussed, on the basis of the application officially presented in the first days of December 2019 by the American lawyer Joe Tacopina.

The broadcasting of the services has created a strong involvement of public opinion nationally and the Movement was born “The Wave of Chico Forti”, now present in all Italian regions.
Among the initiatives already undertaken are the posting of banners, posters and flyers in shops and on cars.

Recall that Enrico Forti, called Chico, is an Italian sentenced to life in the United States of America. Since then he has been in a maximum security prison in Miami for a crime he claims he never committed and, despite twenty years of imprisonment, does not stop proclaiming his innocence.
To support Chico in all these years, in addition to his “Rock mom” Maria, today ninety-two years old, has her three children, lo uncle Gianni Forti with Wilma and his close friend Roberto Fodde.
A large number of friends, artists and personalities from the show have spoken about his story to keep the media attention alive, in the hope that Chico will soon be able to return to Italy as a free man, and for this reason the Committee has been activated “A Chance for Chico “.
In recent months, thanks to the services of Le Iene, a strong involvement of public opinion has been created in Italy. Following this concern, the page Facebook Chico Forti launched the idea of displaying the first “Liberate Chico” posters in commercial activities and on cars. In a short time solidarity grows to the point that it is decided to give a name to all these initiatives and thus the Wave of Chico was born, making a clear reference to his past in the world of Windsurfing.
The “Give a 5 to Chico” fund, set up by the “Una Chance per Chico” Committee, helps alleviate the prison conditions of our friend and fellow citizen. Every month, thanks to the Fund, $ 300 is sent to Chico which allows him to eat a little better on weekends, buy hygiene products and some kind of comfort.
All these things, in his situation, have enormous importance for his survival in prison.
