From 20 October 2017 to 21 January 2018 the Strozzina undercroft will be hosting Radical Utopias, an exhibition – produced and organised by the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, the Fondazione CR Firenze and the Osservatorio per le Arti Contemporanee – celebrating the outstanding creative season enjoyed by the radical movement in Florence in the 1960s and ’70s.

The exhibition will be bringing together for the very first time in a single venue the visionary work of such groups and figures as Archizoom, Remo Buti, 9999, Gianni Pettena, Superstudio, UFO and Zziggurat, in a kaleidoscopic dialogue between objects of design, videos, installations, performances and narratives illustrating another possible world: a critical utopia that had the merit of smashing the status quo of the period, turning Florence into the focal point of a revolution in thinking that had a profound impact on the development of art at the global level.
