Gruppo 70 was an Italian neo-avant-garde collective established in May 1963, following the Arte e comunicazione conference promoted by Lamberto Pignotti, Eugenio Miccini, Sergio Salvi, and Silvio Ramat. The group was made up of poets, writers, critics, artists, and musicians and based primarily in the experimental art scene of Florence, affiliated with the journal Quartiere and the Nuova Figurazione and Nuova Musica schools of art and music, respectively.
Terzo Festival was, as indicated by the name, the third conference held by the group. It was comprised of a series of art events and intiatives scattered throughout the city, including debates, exhibitions, and concerts, divided into the classifications of Argomenti, Pittura, Musica, and Poesia.
As of February 2022, OCLC locates two holdings of this poster in North American libraries.
