We Are the Revolution
Between 1967/1977 Italian Art lived a moment of glory in the international artistic panorama. These were vibrant, dynamic years, nourished by continuous and fertile exchanges between visual arts, theater, literature, music and cinema. It is a turbulent period. Art leaves galleries and museums and becomes an expression of social and political change. Italian gallerists and critics opened their doors to the most daring international artists, such as Joseph Beuys, Herman Nitsch or Marina Abramovic, who found in Italy the opportunity to experiment freely with challenging visions and languages. Through interviews with the protagonists of those years and the use of partially unpublished archival material, the documentary recounts a period in which Italy was at the center of the international avant-garde.
