Italian Radicalism

Schizzo. Foglio Irregolar. (Later subtitle: Foglio Irregolable, Foglio Esotico, Foglio Irregolare). No. 0 (n.d., 1977) through No. 6 (8 June 1980) (all published).

A complete run in 7 issues, each issue approx. 8 pages, of the anarchist Italian journal, containing alternative history stories which allude to real-life events, provocative stories, and essays on topics such as eroticism, homosexuality, and Dadaism. Illustrated profusely throughout. Some minor scattered toning, edgewear, minor chipping, marginal dampstaining to final issue. Tabloid. Original self-wrpps., some tearing and splitting along creases, some partially detached pages. Torino, 1977-1980.

Some of the "reports" in Schizzo include a story in which Hanns Martin Schleyer committed suicide after being kidnapped by the RAF, and one in which Sacco and Vanzetti were assassinated. Issue no. 1 also contains a two-page centerfold of the "Totoanarchia" manifesto. Very scarce; as of April 2019, WorldCat locates only three holdings in North American institutions.
