An experience that was to involve the University of Architecture – where an hitherto unheard of permanent seminar on the housing problem was held with the evicted people invited to talk… – which began to criticize in practice the divisions on which capitalist everyday life is based. From factories to houses, from canteens to clinics, from the asylum to self-defence against the police, ‘let’s take the city’ was a cry of joy, sharing, revolution…
We’ll talk with the editors of the book, some of them participated in the experience in first person
At the end of the discussion: projection of a documentary
