From Saturday, December 2 at the Fabbrica del Vapore you go back in time, thanks to «Revolution – Music and rebels 1966-1970. From the Beatles to Woodstock ».
A journey that retraces the areas in which the revolutions of those years took place: fashion, music, drugs, clubs and counterculture; human rights and street protests; consumerism; the festivals; the alternative communities. From Carnaby Street to London to Haight-Ashbury hippies, from Bay Area’s technological innovation to French May protests, from communities all over America to the Woodstock and Isle of Wight festivals, these years were characterized by a optimistic idealism that pushed people to fight together to subvert the structures of power in every sphere of society.
A reflection on how many of them have produced a real and lasting change and how many have been lost in the following decades. An immersion in the spirit of the era that will be possible until 4 April.
