The history of the Italian radical movement in the words of its protagonists.

For some years now there has been a renewed interest in the history of the Italian radical movement on the part of the latest generations of designers, academics and institutions, both nationally and further afield. The breaking down of confines between disciplines and the emergence of new social mores find a profound echo today in the motivations for current expressions in many fields of culture.

Some of the protagonists of the radical period of the Sixties and Seventies will be coming together for the first time around a table to recount episodes from those years and to traces their effects on contemporary design and to reconstruct the complex situation that gave rise to the radical movement.
