        La festa del Parco Lambro

      Padova: Mastrogiacomo Editore Images 70, 1978. Prima edizione (First edition). broch. Ottimo (Fine). 8vo (cm 22x22). Libro fotografico di Franco Ortolani (oltre 70 fotografie in bianco e nero stampate su pagine di diverso colore). Introduzione di Marisa Rusconi Franco Ortolani documentò in un reportage fotografico stampato su carta bianca, beige e verde il grande evento che fu la VI Festa del Proletariato Giovanile, nel giugno 1976 a Milano a Parco Lambro. Fu organizzata dalla rivista Re Nudo, la più diffusa pubblicazione di controcultura italiana, sostenuta da varie organizzazioni politiche come il Partito Radicale e Lotta Continua. L'evento aveva come obiettivo quello di essere un punto di incontro per migliaia di giovani, riuniti dalla passione per la musica e dalla voglia di dar vita ad una società diversa da quella consumistica. Non fu soltanto l'"apocalisse del pop" o l’"apoteosi della provocazione", come molti scrissero, e come Marisa Rusconi criticò nell'unico testo che fa da supporto alle fotografie. Infatti "proprio lì, dallo sfacelo del mito di un certo modo di stare insieme - pace, amore e misticismo collettivo, musica come droga e droga come musica ecc. - nacque la necessità di trovare altre strade, altri modi. Ma allora né i protagonisti né gli osservatori potevano essere in grado di cogliere questa realtà in fieri. Ne registrarono solo il punto di arrivo". I quattro giorni di yoga, musica e droghe erano stati confinati entro il recinto del parco, senza acqua, elettricità e servizi igienici, negati dal Comune. Ma nonostante ciò, scorrendo velocemente le pagine del volume, il vortice delirante di corpi nudi in girotondo, i fornelli improvvisati, gli striscioni "né servi né padroni", i falò, le danze frenetiche e annebbiate, i bonghi, i capelli spettinati e i barboni sulle facce sfatte emanavano ancora il fascino per cui tutto sembrava possibile.
