Radical Utopias.

This winter I've been at an exhibition here in Florence at Palazzo Strozzi called UTOPIE VERTICALI (Radical Utopias), celebrating the outstanding creative season enjoyed by the radical movement in Florence in the 1960s and ’70s. The exhibition was a collection of works, from visuals to installations to technical drawings to scale models of buildings, by the early "punks" of architecture from the late 60s / early 70s. Their style was visionary and sometimes kitsch, like an old ancestor of our current new ugly, brutalist, modern pop or whatever you can call it. They were pioneers. I felt illuminated perusing it, made a lot of photos to keep as inspiration material, and after a bit I decided, I would have done a tribute, reinterpreting that artworks through my graphic approach. Here they are.
