This course will examine the impact of the counterculture of 1968 on Italian pop-music, both then and now. Students will analyze authors and musicians who openly took part in the cultural changes proposed at the time, as well as authors who mediated between traditional music and more socially committed music. Our material will include music, videos, documentaries, historical and cultural documents.
