Milan, 12 December 1969: a bomb explodes killing 16 people and injuring 84 others. In 1970, a collective of filmmakers, sponsored by Lotta Continua, filmed the protest commemorating this event and questioned the omissions in the police enquiry and the country’s social reality. This ethnological portrait, notably led by Pier Paolo Pasolini, presents the Italian subaltern classes in their state of dismay and violent rebellion.


Giovanni Bonfanti is an activist; Pier Paolo Pasolini raised the funds and shot some of the sequences in Milan, Musocco, Carrara, Bagnoli, Naples and Viareggio; Lotta Continua (Permanent Struggle) was a far left extra-parliamentary organisation in Italy from 1969–1976.
