ITALIA ’70 – The Sound of Political Dissent – Milano (02/06/2021)

Soho Radio

EPISODE 2: MILAN

As Milan is hit by a bombing attack that marks the beginning of the Strategy of Tension, Bossa Nova and Samba play on Italian radios painting the portrait of a vanishing country. The evocative South American rhythms with their uptempo Saudade, imported by asylum-seeking Brazilian artists, clash with the violence and industrialisation clogging Italy. For the second instalment of Italia 70 – The Sound of Political Dissent, we discuss the loss of innocence of a country – from a postcard-like scenario to the stage for violent terrorist attacks.
