Parco Lambro 76′ by Alberto Grifi – Sala della Scherma al Foro Italico

Tomorrow, Saturday 29 November at 9pm, NERO in collaboration with the Associazione Culturale Alberto Grifi will present the film Festival del proletariato giovanile al Parco Lambro (1976) by Alberto Grifi. The film is projected on the occasion of Nico Vascellari‘s exhibit Codalunga, which consists of a series of events, meetings and performances held for the duration of the show in the Sala della Scherma al Foro Italico (Ex Aula Bunker) in Rome.

Albero Grifi (Rome, 29 May 1938- Rome, 22 April 2007) was a film director, painter and creator of cinematic-video devices, considered one of the greatest exponents of Italian experimental cinema. Il Festival del proletariato giovanile al Parco Lambro (1976) is made from 27 hours of recordings and 3 hours of 16mm film covering the proletariat youth festival held at the Parco Lambro in Milan in June 1976, organized by the magazine “Re Nudo,” that attracted 150 thousand people. Initially the film was funded by the organizers who aimed to make a concert film, but in reality, the film records the protest by the young proletarians, the musical performances and all the goods that the organizers had hoped to sell: sandwiches, beer, books and discs “of the left.” The duration of the film is 58′.

See you there!
