The relations between Pasolini and Lotta Continua movement were complex and dialectic: the 70’s movements, in his opinion, didn’t understand the poetry’s deep-rooted antagonistic feature, while the young accused him of not understanding the “fiery time”. Pasolini helped Lotta Continua to make 12 dicembre documentary, a journey in the early 70’s Italy, among faces that looked fake and reciting to the writer, hopes and resignation, pictures from a different country and still topical and crucial subjects; the movie guides us through the doubts about Piazza Fontana’s outrage, the Resistance ideals disappointed by the democratic state, workplace deaths and damages to the workers’ health, unemployment, civil-war-like scenes of the Reggio’s risings and standardization following capitalistic models and values, a brake that stops the construction of an alternative society even today.

Keywords: Pasolini, Lotta Continua, Sessantotto, anni Settanta, Piazza Fontana, Italia.
