A 3 years trip into the complex dynamics of a group, inside the "non-compliant" realities of the far-right in Rome. This work, focuses on the official activities during the day, on the other side, it is an endless march in the night through Italy and Europe following many young boys and girls for whom words like "comraderie" and "ownership" become a sacred code. symbols are very important for them and sometimes are also impressed on their skin, the alliances are multiple and frequent. For most of them take one side in a battle and make "group" is an obvious choice and a fundamental value. Today in Italy the far right realities are extremely divided and, unlike other European countries where there is a rise of nationalism, they dont refer to a single party able to obtain a number of votes enough to gain strength and voice into the Parliament. A universe of associations, many of which are released by the dynamics of the parties, divided for political current of inspiration, history and religion. There are clubs, libraries, music genres, sports, student movements and even tattoo artists in this underground and hidden world. Filter the truth from the media lies is their mission and the gas mask is a real identifying symbol as well as a way to protect themselves from the world around them. "We do not pray, do not hope, do not beg. We are the ones who still believe, we are the ones who work in the present to take over the future because the past smells old like a surrender". (Militant Community Zenit ten years speech)
