Milan 1963: the economic boom quickens the pulse of the city. Carla Cerati records the changes underway: from the Central Station, emigrants spread out towards the suburbs. New neighbourhoods and new habits are formed. Milan becomes the capital of consumerism, with department stores preaching a different way of life. But there is also the city that practises the unchanging ritual of La Scala, and a new bourgeoisie depicted at inaugurations and cocktail parties. Then comes the great political season, with student demonstrations and workers walking out of the factories in protest. Her photographs thus took on a more social and political slant. The funeral of Roberto Franceschi in 1973 was to mark the close of a fervent period that has now become legendary. Through her photographs, Carla Cerati served as one of its key eyewitnesses.
