The economic boom in the 60s

7/9/2024 from 21.00

Piazza San Rocco Gorizia - Gorica

Il boom economico degli anni '60

Border stories in the run-up to GO! 2025

Written and directed by Mauro Fontanini, the show, amusing but respectful of historical truth, ironically recounts the growth of industry in the region with examples represented by the diffusion of the Vespa and the Fiat 500, two cult cars of the time. However, space will also be given to events of primary importance for the period, such as the arrival in Gorizia of Franco Basaglia, the suppression of Miren airport as a stopover for scheduled flights, and the presence in the city of the grey-green uniforms free to invade the shops in the centre. It will end with the bomb found unexploded at the Transalpina, of the same model as the one in the Piazza Fontana bombing. Everything will be embellished and softened by the famous songs of the 1960s, by memories of the arrival in Italian homes of TV with Mike Bongiorno's first programmes and Saturday night shows. The intention is to entertain by recalling so many good times, now in the past.

Admission is free, places are limited.
