The Italian rock of the seventies to know it must be traveled: the records are the ideal time machine, they transport us from beat to psychedelia, from progressive to punk, from songwriters to new wave; but the real journey passes through cities and suburbs, provinces and regions, touching islands, lakes and mountains, looking for a local underground where music ferments. Because where there is a house there is always a cellar, and there sometimes you play. Rome, Milan, Genoa and Naples among schools and discography;Florence and Bologna that look from the Apennines, Turin and its jazz. A historical itinerary for a geography of Italian rock from Palermo to Aosta. Riccardo Storti describes this musical Italy through over 600 artists focusing on the analysis of 375 records released between 1967 and 1980.
