2017 was the year that marked the centenary of the Russian Revolution, one of the most remarkable events of the century. Despite the firm dismissal of Putin’s government in supporting any celebration of the Bolshevik Revolution itself, hundreds gathered in Saint Petersburg and Moscow to commemorate the rise of the Soviet Union. Diplomats, politicians, activists or simply communism supporters from Russia, Vietnam, Chile, Paraguay, Spain, Italy and other countries, reunited and took part at the events organized by the communist parties of the Russian Federation and the Moscow Communist Inter brigade. Nostalgic choirs were sung during rallies, speeches and a gala-concert, becoming the soundtrack of a faded glorification, which turned out to be an occasion to discuss, encourage and plan for the immediate future, in order to re-establish a society based on Socialism.
