Slogan of 1968
1969: tutto in un anno is a journey through the year that changed the history of the world. We often talk about 1968, and yet it was in the following year that many great and defining changes were registered. 1969 began with the tragedy of Jan Palach who self-immolated while protesting the occupation of Prague by the Warsaw Pact armies. It is the historic date of Woodstock and of the first man on the moon. 1969 is a historic turning point for Italy: it is the year when the first law allowing divorce was established, the year of the Hot Autumn and of the student protests. The year of the Piazza Fontana bombing and of the death of the anarchist Pinelli. These and many more events are depicted in 1969: tutto in un anno which is based on the novel by Paolo Conti, published by Laterza in 2009.
