Silvia Fanti and Giorgio Barberio Corsetti interpret the exhibition in relation to the Italian experimental theater scene of the 1970s, which includes the group Beat 72 as well as many other experiences outside and inside the city of Rome. The spontaneity of this historical moment, with the mixing of languages and scenes that characterized it, is revisited in the light of their past experiences, the Link Project and La Gaia Scienza of which they were respectively part, and of their current positions.
