RADICAL LANDSCAPES is a journey into the personal and artistic life of Fabrizio Fiumi and his group of radical architects 9999, who in the late 1960s animated the sleepy city of Florence in the explosion of the most radical political and artistic utopias together with their contemporaries Superstudio and Archizoom: 9999 planned a new society by putting community life into practice, imagining a world where nature and technology could live in harmony. Through an extraordinary family archive, Fiumi's visionary and still relevant utopia invites us to rethink the present and the future to imagine new radical landscapes.
