Description

LANGUAGE: Italian SUBTITLES: Italian, English, Spanish, French The day after the closure of the 2009 edition, Rototom voted unanimously to leave Italy. Spain was the chosen destination. It was then that the expensive and tough (and well documented by the organizers themselves) job of finding a new place (“you feel like you’ve been kicked out of your own home”, Manuela remembers) until making it to Benicassim, Valencia (2010 edition). The reasons behind Rototom’s move are in part attributable to the Fini-Giovanardi Law but are also the result of a complex situation that reflects the difficulties faced by independent promoters when promoting culture and, organizing festivals and big events in Italy. The chapter includes the interventions of the jurist Stefano Rodotá and the Italian band Mellow Mood. Location: Barcelona, Benicassim (Spain).
