De Maria’s “20 Days of Turin”
In this conversation with journalist Luca Signorelli, we dissect the role of the artist, genius vs. mental distortion, the human need to be seen, and the perils of social media before the creation of social media. De Maria’s cult-classic “20 Days of Turin” was written shortly after the student uprisings of 1968, when The University of Turin was a hotbed of dissent and rebellion, and the city of Turin itself was under siege. At the time of this book’s writing, De Maria would have been living through one of his country’s biggest revolutions and deadliest years – the Years of Lead (Anni di piombo).
