Amc2 journal Issue 9: Amore e Piombo looks at the tumultuous era of Italy's 'Years of Lead' – a period when bombings, kidnappings and assassinations became the standard currency of Italian politics. Press photographs collated for Amore e Piombo from the archives of Rome-based agency Team Editorial Services reflect the manifold aspects of the period, as the photographers oscillate between pursuing film stars at play and capturing the violence on the streets against a backdrop of industrial unrest and a sexual revolution embracing free love, divorce, abortion, feminism and gay rights. Far from offering answers or uncovering definitive truths, the photographs reveal only tantalising fragments of evidence about this most turbulent and tangled decade, while the true puppet-masters and string-pullers remain just out of frame. Published by Archive of Modern Conflict (London).
