Ten years of performances by the artist Iginio De Luca: twenty blitzes and non-authorised urban raids in the public space of the capital city.

A set of actions that crosses, witnessing to them, the political, social, and cultural current events of these ten years (2008-2018) in which the De Luca blitzes did not turn out to be mere goliardic acts or superficial theatre shots. In the scream and the grotesque of his gestures, there has always been an invitation to reflect.

The book develops through theoretical interventions, drawings, and images in explicit support of a series of actions that use different techniques and languages, also including images of the works exhibited in the Riso amaro, Dieci anni di blitz exhibition (curated by Claudio Libero Pisano, AlbumArte, Rome, 2017).
