Art, wine, rebellion: the Situationism is born (Editor the Melangolo).

Both the exhibition and the book will be the excuse to talk about the artistic movement of the situationists.

Donatella Alfonso, Repubblica's journalist and writer with this book gives us the opportunity to study in deep an artistic movement that has laid the groundwork for all the changes that occurred from '68 onwards.

Pino Boresta with his artistic actions instead offers us the opportunity to understand the differences between the founders of historical revolutionary movements and contemporary artists subject to enormous contradictions.

the moderator of event will be Fulvio Abbate which, through his well-founded experience as a writer, will be able to focus on the differences between the revolutionary past and current conformism.


Bianco Contemporaneo will also present a portrait of the musician Walter Olmo by maestro Angelo Colone (guitarist), as a tribute to one of the founders of the Situationist movement. The art historian Gianluca Tedaldi will intervene.
