Indiani Metropolitani

Nous pouvons tous entrer dans un devenir-noir, dans un devenir-indien, ce qui fut d’ailleurs justement l’intuition humoristique et géniale des Indiens Métropolitains à Rome. (...) Indiani metropolitani est le nom adopté par des groupes d’étudiants et de jeunes travailleurs précaires du Mouvement de 1977 en Italie, point culminant du mouvement de l’Autonomia. Le nom se réfère au fait que ces groupes s’autodéfinissaient comme les habitants d’une sorte de "réserve culturelle" par rapport à l’ordre établi (du travail). Les Indiani metropolitani ont surtout existé à Rome où ils organisèrent des performances au printemps de 1977, et à Bologne, où se forma le groupe analogue Cellule mao-dadaïste. On pourrait dire que ces groupes étaient sous influence situationniste avec une matrice ouvriériste.
