Between 1967/1977 Italian Art experiences a moment of glory on the inter- national art scene. These years are vibrant, dynamic and are nourished by continuing and fertile exchanges between the visual arts, theater, literature, music and cinema. It's a turbulent time. Art came out from galleries and museums and becomes expression of social and political change. Gallerists and Italian critics open their doors to the boldest international artists, like Joseph Beuys, Hermann Nitsch or Marina Abramovic, who find in Italy the opportunity to freely experiment with visionary and challenging languages. The film describes a period when Italy was the center of international avant-garde, with experimental galleries like Attico or Studio Morra, with great exhibitions like Contemporanea in the parking lot of Villa Borghese and with dance, theatre and poetry festival.
