We Want Everything

We Want Everything

"We want Everything", it's a comic book based on the book of the same name by Nanni Balestrini, published in 1971 in Italy. The book deals with the young unskilled mass worker, the proletarian of the South (here of the southern Italy) who, with his mobility, immigration and work, supported the economic development of (northern) Italy (and of all of northern Europe) the second half of the 20th century.

Struggles that marked the beginning of nearly a decade of labor and youth demands and struggles that were expressed in Italy largely through the Autonomy movement.
