Another achingly good book. Italian photographer Tano D'Amico's photobook of the class struggle that tore through the fabric of Italian society in the late sixties and seventies.
Se Non Ci Conoscete
was published in 1977. It was cheaply produced on poor quality paper with the printing not much better than a photocopy.
Revolt into style. Great shape and great sweater too. More 'fight at the Fiat factory' than Fiorucci, perhaps. There are not actually so many violent images in the book. For every demonstration, march or occupation photographed there are two more portraits of people before or after; watching and waiting, clearing up and counting the cost.
