Italo Disco. The Sparkling Sound of the 80s

Alessandro Melzzini
Italy, Germany
2021

Kitschy trash or misunderstood genius? Italo Disco. The Sparkling Sound of the 80s immerses the audience in a musical universe of an era. An era where millions of young people would let loose to a wild beat made from synthetic and captivating melodies, weird English lyrics, electronic rhythms and visionary music videos. This music was fueled by the hopes and dreams of young musicians who were capable of releasing mind-blowing pop, and always moving between trash and brilliance. Featuring essential tracks like “Dirty Talk” by Klein + M.B.O, accompanied by extravagant 1980s graphics and wonderfully cheesy video clips, this film is the perfect introduction to Italo‚Äôs worldwide impact on the sound and aesthetics of club culture.
