’68 Naples


Year: 2008

Pages: 208

There have been two revolutions of worldwide importance, the first in 1848 and the second in 1968. Both failed. Both changed the world.

In 1968, Naples was shaken by a social earthquake set out to crumble the established system, a system that protected the interests of a select few but obstructed the growth of society. A three-year period of social upheaval that interprets true events. The radical change sparked in Naples extended throughout all aspects of Italian society in an extremely short period of time, including institutions seemingly impervious to social reform: penal establishments, the judiciary system, psychiatric hospitals, and the military.
