Rai Documentari presents “Lotta Continua”, a documentary program broadcast on Friday January 13 at 21.25 on Rai Tre, which traces the history of the political group of the same name starting from the meeting between the student and labor movements, which took place outside the gates. Fiat Mirafiore. Produced by Verdiana Bixio for Publispei with Luce Cinecittà in collaboration with Rai Documentari and Rai Play, “Lotta Continua” is freely inspired by The Boys Who Wanted to Make the Revolution written by Aldo Cazzullo and directed by Tony Saccucci (Nastro d’argento for “La prima donna” and a special mention in Nastro D’Argento Doc for “Il pugile del duce”) and were written by Andrea DiMartino, Eleonora Orlandi, and Tony Saccucci. The docufilm is also available exclusively on Rai Play in a four-episode docu-series release.
At the end of the 1960s, while the anti-regime revolution unites young people from all over the world, a revolutionary group is born in Turin. The meeting sparked between the workers of Mirafiori and the advocates of the student movement. The group does not have a name yet. He will take it from the headline of the first flyers that were distributed at the gates of the factory: “The struggle continues.” From the first internal Fiat motorcade to the 1976 elections, through the hot autumn, the massacre in Piazza Fontana, the death of Benelli and the murder of Commissioner Calabresi, the documentary recounts a crucial decade in Italian history through the words of some of the boys of the time: Judd Lerner, Eri De Luca, Vicki Franzinetti , Marco Boatto, Paolo Liguori, Giampiero Mugini, Marino Sinipaldi. After the movement broke up, some became politicians, journalists, and managers. Others preferred instead to continue the struggle through more violent and dramatic forms, but most simply gave up political activity.
