The images that Cresci uses in this book, dedicated to the Roman works of 1968, are experimental images, made from unintentional over-impressions on 35 mm film, or from "poor", heliographic prints, derived from a self-positing photographic matrix applied to the pages of the weekly magazine l'Espresso and, finally, from the frames of a 16 mm. video shot by a friend during the clashes in Valle Giulia, projected with an enlarger on photosensitive paper. The graphic sign of these images is unconventional, clearly breaking with the tradition of the genres and instruments used for communication purposes, a transgressive sign perfectly inscribed in the cultural climate of 1968 to which Cresci adheres with participation and political militancy, deliberately omitting reportage to highlight instead the metalinguistic mediation underlying each message.
