Non una rivista ma un documento: Documento Sud (1959-1961) tra avanguardia artistica e testimonianza socio-culturale

Giorgio Bacci


Documento Sud (with six issues between 1959 and 1961), is one of the most important avant-garde Italian periodicals of the late 50s, and it was promoted by Gruppo 58 in Naples.

The magazine aimed to bridge the culture of southern Italy to the European scene. It included some key international figures on the coeval art-historical scenario, such as Enrico Baj, Emilio Villa or Édouard Jaguer.

This short essay provides a critical introduction to the magazine, identifying its principal characteristics and suggesting future studies and insights.
