Marcin Memorial Day

by giuli 17 May 2014

I took these two pictures during the construction of the bastard bowl back in 2008.
The boss gives directions, then turns his back and it’s instantly showtime :)

When I think Marcin sometimes I just crank up, other times I catch myself getting a little nostalgic knowing that the other half of the laughter is gone with him.
Sunday, May 18th at Cinetown Skatepark in Cinecittà, Rome, Marcin’s friends gather to spend a nice day together and bring back a bit of those laughs that the Flying Polish used to bring to any session!
Rest in peace Marcin and thanks for the journey.

spizzate sto video… (roman slang for spread this video)

Nikolai Danov

… And we do it.

Romantic is a video project by Michael Quigley, filmed in the winter of 2004 between Rome, Milan and Barcelona. It features the haydays of Roman skateboarders in the mid 2000s, among which Nikolai Danov and Marcin Solecki. This edit, although incomplete, is dedicated to his memory. Thanks Mike and keep up the good job.

Unreleased Projects – Italian Movies Adv

by jep 17 May 2014

This bastard ad was the first one of a series on italian movies… Io sto con gli ippopotami with Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (1979).

It was never published but we’ve always kept the draft hanging on the wall in our offices as it was too cool and it portrays Marcin and Nikolai together.

Marcin Solecki Memorial Day

by giuli 17 May 2014

Last Saturday, May 29th, a Memorial skatejam was held at the Cinecittà Skatepark in Rome to say goodbye to our friend Marcin Solecki, prematurely departed on May 14th, 2010.

The event wants to be annual, and i really hope it does make it every year, and that the participation will be massive and fervent as it was for this first edition.

It’s been a good day, a success, an occasion to meet old friends and find out new ones, cheering each other up. Skateboarding has always had a social cohesive factor in the lives of many of us, and so it was for Marcin. I was moved to see people i wasn’t even expecting to be there, and i was moved by the awesome murale that the Black Hand, his crew, dedicated to him at the skatepark entrance. Marcin was a true friend and an inspiration to me, and i think he was to many of the people that were there Saturday.

A big thank you to everybody that attended the jam.
