The late 1960s: Paris, London and Milan all move at the same fast pace, fueled by a fresh creative and rebellious impetus. Guido Crepax picks up on this energy in Milan, a creative hothouse undergoing what is also an aesthetic revolution, and transfers it to a comic strip in which art, music, design, film and fashion all blend together, breaking with traditional narrative structure. The dreamy photographer Valentina, Crepax's alter ego, becomes a cross-generational icon.
