“An astronaut son of a carpenter,
Yuri Gagarin, a son of Red October”
I Giovani Comunisti/e (Young Communists) is the youth wing of the Partito della Rifondazione Comunista (Communist Refoundation Party). Music by Banda Bassotti (“Juri Gagarin”). Cf. “Gagarin’s experience shows that the son of a Soviet carpenter enjoyed material foundations to make it into the history of humanity — not bad for a country of much-maligned real socialism!” (Andrea Parti, “Gagarin: una lezione di progresso e meritocrazia,” Giovani Comunisti Torino 2.0, 11 April 2011).
