The aim of the article is to investigate the interpretation given by four contemporary movies about the decade from 1968 to 1978 through the analysis of their soundtracks. The movies are The dreamers (2003, by Bertolucci), La meglio gioventù (2003, by Giordana), Après Mai (2012, by Assayas) and Il grande sogno (2009, by Placido). The analysis concerns specific scenes and their background music. It shows what has remained in the collective imagination of the so-called "Sessantotto". Therefore, the movies propose only the more "romantic" aspects of "Sessantotto", a season where it was still possible to imagine one owns future and society’s, barely hinting at terrorism and disenchantment that shortly would have followed.
