During the 1970s in Italy, a group of visual poets stirred up quite a scene around Florence. The ring leader, a young poet who went by the name of Sarenco issued a periodical called “Lotta Poetica” (Poetic War), a communist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist monthly devoted primarily to poetry with visual elements. Members of this “Gruppo 70” as they came to be called included Eugenio Miccini, Luciano Ori, Lucia Marcucci, Giusi Coppini, Michele Perfetti and Lamberto Pignotti. Here is a report on their subversive activities. Activities which eventually led the police to confiscate their printing presses, and caused another avant-garde periodical, “Flash Art” to denounce their leader, Sarenco. (from KPFA Folio)
