La fine del mondo has been produced by Marco Fusinato, Felicity D. Scott and Mark Wasiuta on the occasion of their contribution to the section Monditalia at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, June 7 to November 23, 2014. Their installation, also titled La fine del mondo, is comprised of this print document along with sensor-triggered audio-visual components depicting related records from Turin’s Piper Club of 1966 and three Milanese centri sociali: Leoncavallo, Cox18, and Virus. Staging encounters between the Piper Club and centri sociali, both the print document and audio-visual format aim to provoke questions about the design and management of nightclubs and social spaces conceived as sites of political mediation and under the auspice of participation and self-governance. Arising before and after the late-1960s political eruptions in Italy, and marked by distinct patterns of cultural exchange, migration, and industrial transformation, the differences between—and continuities across—these environments speak in provocative ways to Italy’s imbrication within the wider system of global capital. What sort of apparatus, we ask, is materialized in each? The images and archival documents presented herein have been prepared with the assistance of, and in collaboration with, Andrea Membretti, Pietro Derossi, Elena Hileg Iannuzzi, and Marco Philopat.
