1980s, Milan. Under the surface of plastic music a turbulent movement is stirring, a creative magma ready to burst into phenomena that evade the conventions of popular “Sanremo” music. In this climate Carnival of Fools appear, a punk rock band born on the initiative of Mauro Ermanno Giovanardi, already well-known in the international underground scene. Documents, live footage, playbills, and interviews with Manuel Agnelli, Violante Placido, Hugo Race, and Paolo Mauri form the testimony of a musical adventure that lasted little more than a five-year period and recreate the flavor of the era, without falling into the trap of nostalgia.
