Tano D'Amico Archive

The Tano D’Amico Archive includes original photographic negatives and contact prints of activities of the ’77 movement in Italy, including radical actions and related events at that time, such as images documenting the the expulsion of Lama (February 1977), Francesco Lorusso (who was killed in March 1977), young anarchists and graffiti in Bologna, the killing of Antonio Lo Muscio, the capture and torture of Maria Pia Vianale and Franca Salerno, and many photographs of the Convention against repression held in Bologna (September 1977). The holdings also feature many photographs related to Indiani Metropolitani, including of a meeting and of a celebration as well as clashes at the University of Rome. These images are closely linked to the publications, drawings, and correspondence in the Pablo Echaurren Papers.
