Rarely seen photos of the art punk scene in 1980s Naples will be on view at the Italian Cultural Institute from December 8, 2017 to January 12, 2018. Against the backdrop of a city exacerbated by urban disaster, an unruly artistic movement emerged, calling themselves "the Neapolitan Savages," and for a brief moment their utopian credo -- counter public corruption and the new political makeup with creative anarchy -- gave hope to a people debased by oppressions throughout history.
