Yes Yes Yes Revolutionary Press in Italy indaga la scena italiana della stampa rivoluzionaria di “organi” editoriali in foglio, giornale, rivista, ciclostilato, bollettino, fascicolo, alcuni quotidiani altri periodici, spesso irregolari, altri aperiodici di cui molti numeri unici in reiterata attesa di autorizzazione… La febbrile attività tipografica si lega alla serrata politico-ideologica, antagonista e contro-culturale di un periodo di lotta, conquista di spazi civili, aree di libertà e di creatività sociale. In questo volume si censiscono e selezionano criticamente più di 600 stampati usciti tra il 1966 e il 1977. Questa ricerca è la continuazione naturale della corposa pubblicazione, uscita nel 2014 ed edita dagli stessi editori: Yes Yes Yes, Alternative press, 66-77 from Provo to Punk, curata da Emanuele De Donno ed Amedeo Martegani. Quel primo volume esaminava il ruolo della stampa alternativa, underground e controculturale europea ed americana in un periodo fiorente: 1966-1977; questa nuova edizione si concentra sulla scena italiana, la cui ampia strategia di “connivenze” e la frastagliata geografia regionale hanno posto la necessità, per sezionare tematicamente il percorso, di dare una visione allargata dei mezzi di stampa alternativa, non solo underground, indipendenti e contro-culturali, ma anche della contro-informazione, della editoria “schierata” ultra-radicale politica quindi ideologica. Il nucleo consistente di testate censite nella prolifica rete italiana che si allarga anche alle province è stata reperita grazie ai contributi di archivi messi in rete, collezionisti, cultori, editori e attivisti da tutta Italia che costituiscono una geografia sommersa dell’editoria contro-culturale italiana ma anche di un collezionismo resistente e ragionato. Questi mezzi stampa documentano una ricerca di cultura radicale, di autori e co-autori, promotori/artisti di cultura libera ed alternativa, distribuita in formati di confine e sperimentali.

Yes Yes Yes Revolutionary Press in Italy investigates the Italian scene of Revolutionary Press and editorial “organs” printed as news sheets, newspapers, magazines, mimeographs, pamphlets, some daily papers and magazines, other discontinuous publications including single editions printed while awaiting authorization… Sometimes the journals were a one time only supplement or attachment, ephemeral and volatile. The dynamic printing activities were linked to the political, ideological, antagonist and counter-cultural struggle of a period of protest and occupation of civil spaces, areas of freedom and social creativity. A critical selection of over 600 publications printed between 1966 and 1977 are cataloged in this book. This research is the natural continuation of the substantial publication, released in 2014 and published by the same publishers: Yes Yes Yes, Alternative press, 66-77 from Provo to Punk, curated by Emanuele De Donno and Amedeo Martegani. That first volume examined the role of European, American alternative, underground and counter-cultural press in a flourishing period: 1966-1977; this new edition focuses, on the same frame of time, on the Italian scene which extensive strategy of “connivance” and the disparate regional geography, has made it necessary, in order to thematically section the topic, to offer a wide view not only of the underground, independent and counter-cultural alternative press media but also of counter-information, ultra-radical political and ideological publications. The substantial selection of magazine collected in the prolific Italian network that also extends to the provinces was found thanks to the contributions of archives, collectors, scholars, publishers and activists from all over Italy who constitute submerged geography of the Italian counter-cultural publishing but also of a resistant and structured collecting process. These “printed media” document a research of radical culture, of authors and co-authors, promoters/artists of free and alternative culture, distributed in experimental formats.

YES YES YES Alternative Press
'66-'77, From Provo To Punk

yy


The ultimate compendium of counterculture press in the United States and the Netherlands during the heady decades of the 1960s and ’70s, this volume is the definition of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. From underground pornography, free love, anti-establishment anarchism, and Provo, to anti-war protests, spiritual empowerment, the Black Panthers, and women’s liberation, it’s all here. Page after page of magazine covers, articles, advertisements, and clippings encapsulate the era when academia revolted, gays marched in the streets, and hippies wondered if Jesus got high, too.
