After the forfeit of last August, the evening dedicated to the last vate of the beat generation finally arrives. The event takes up the thread - and the title - of the poetry festival "Fuck Art Let's Dance!" organized exactly 20 years ago by Antonio Bertoli and his bookshop City Lights Italia, the Florentine branch (and the only one in the world) of Lawrence Ferlinghetti's legendary City Lights Bookstore, who was the star of that festival.

All in the name of the famous aphorism "Fuck Art, Let's Dance!", To remember the American poet, publisher, painter / visual artist and his special relationship with Florence.

No nostalgic pretense of "as we were": only that, humble and sincere, to reconnect with his friend Ferlinghetti, the "wonderful and complete outsider of culture and art", in love with Tuscany and Florence.

Ferlinghetti was a total and totally committed artist: to demolish myths, to awaken consciences, to practice art. But not useless art, an end in itself. In the words of Antonio Bertoli - writer, poet, man of the theater who died in 2015 - the very happy and irreverent “Fuck Art Let's Dance! it contains in itself - in its simplicity and immediacy - all the complex aesthetic thought that is the basis of its intervention in art (poetry, literature, painting, publishing). Making art is useless when art is an end in itself ("fuck art"). On the other hand, it is something incomparable when he dances the dance of life (“let's dance!”) ”.
