The photos that appear in this book speak of the Milan of the years between 1976 and 1980, telling us about and testifying to a vanished era, but above all about young people who want to take on a social role by making a spectacle of their daily lives. Gallo moves well among them being their contemporaries and sharing with them many of the same claims.
The Uranians were the new expression of the young Italian counterculture initiated by the '77 Movement and later continued by the Metropolitan Indians.
