Italian photojournalist Dino Fracchia was born in Milan in 1950 and began his professional career with the newspaper ‘l’Unità’ in 1974. Around that time, counterculture newspapers such as the magazine ‘Re Nudo’ (The Naked King) were being printed. These organized two large rock music rallies (named ‘Youth Festival of the proletariat’) in Parco Lambro, Milan, modelled after the peace and love atmosphere of Woodstock (1969). Fracchia’s camera recorded these large-scale happenings in unambiguous detail, gatherings of the radical left which would eventually culminate in Bologna’s violent clashes of 1977. Countless images capture the vibe of this fleeting historical moment.
