1967_web

8-15 July 1967. Into the space.
Many events take place during the fifth edition of the Festival. The Esposizione internazionale Segni nello Spazio, dedicated to visual and concrete poetry, takes place in Castle of San Giusto. The International Art Exhibition L’uomo e lo spazio is held in Palazzo Costanzi, while the Humor graphic exhibition takes place in Circolo della Cultura e delle Arti and a tribute to Spatialism, Omaggio allo Spazialismo, is held in Sala Comunale d’Arte.
Fontana’s cuts are the Festival image for this year.

At the Festival the “fanzines”, amateur magazines for fans, make their appearance. They are so successful that in 1968, during the Festival, an international fanzines exhibition – I giovani e la fantascienza – curated by Gianfranco Battisti and Fabio Pegan, takes place in Circolo della Stampa of Trieste.
