Elettra Fiumi’s documentary recounts the visionary spirit of her father Fabrizio (Florence 1943 – Los Angeles 2013), co-founder of the Florentine radical architecture group 9999, starting from the discovery of an archive full of multimedia documents and collages. Animated drawings, archival images and interviews with the other members of the group, Giorgio Birelli and Carlo Caldini, as well as friends and other exponents of the radical architecture movement, such as Adolfo Natalini of Superstudio, trace a journey between the United States and late 60s Florence. Fiumi and others of the 9999 group (Birelli, Caldini e Paolo Galli) shared an avant-garde vision aimed at the future and technological innovations with attention to environmental issues. These reflections converged in Space Electronic, a Florentine nightclub designed by 9999 which between the 60s and 70s hosted musical and artistic performances including those of Judith Malina and the Living Theatre.
