With Franco “Bifo” Berardi and Federico Campagna, in discussion
As they move out of the Bologna squat, a key site where the Autonomia (refusal of work) movement was organised during the 1970s, Bifo and other residents reminisce about the house and its role in three decades of radical political struggles. Framed within personal memories, this film is a account of Italian revolutionary history that is personal and moving, and a document of a moment of epochal transition.
