*2023 stock. Italian language edition* This edition of "Manuale di CUlturea Industriale" entirely revised, updated, and increased by more than fifty percent from the previous edition edited by Paolo Bandera, remains the reference text of an uncompromising counterculture that has been able to resist the blandishments of the market for twenty years.

Music, performance, radical philosophies noisily sing the end of the industrial age. From here all "hard" musical forms have taken inspiration, from post-punk and metal to the most radical techno, from electronic experimentation to the machine theater of Fura dels Baus. In the totally updated Italian edition, richly illustrated with hundreds of pictures of the bands and album covers, the birth of the movement is recounted with groups such as Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire, to renewers such as Test Department and Einstuerzende Neubauten, ending with a broad overview of the Italian, Japanese and most recent evolutions of hardcore techno.

"Nothing is (or ever will be) considered sacred except dedication to the complete realization of the individual imagination. These are not art gallery artists struggling to get where the money is-these are artists in defiance of art. All norms and values are challenged. The styles, principles and content they resist are of an anarchic nature, grounded in a post-Holocaust morality."
