Lessons of Anarchy, chronicles of encounters that actually took place it is defined by its authors as "a spacious discussion table, an atlas, a tender root from which new convivialities will sprout".
The publication, edited by Antonio Brizioli of Emergenze Publishing and accompanied by illustrations by Beppe Giacobbe, collects the transcription of a series of meetings on the theme of anarchy that took place in the summers of 2019 and 2020 in Perugia, in the square that hosts Edicola 518.
Each transcribed debate is accompanied by a series of reading tips and small insights into characters, words, salient facts or concepts cited during the discussion.
The choice of the large format with elastic binding is interesting, making this magazine a real tool for work and reflection.

In an era of progressive restriction of personal and social freedoms, lAnarchy is the only tool still capable of designing spaces of autonomy. Whether they are markets, squares, movements, software or simply bookstores: the only places that break the conformism of the times are those built on the rule of "neither obey nor command".
In this number:
- Carlo Milani (hacker) and Ray Lorenzo (architect) have formed an unthinkable alliance called "Real cities and virtual cities"
- Stefano Boni illustrates his notion of state starting from the spatial concepts of horizontality and verticality
- Piergiorgio Giacchè and Goffredo Fofi debated the meaning of "civil disobedience", inviting us to field - today more than ever - critical thoughts that develop urgent actions.
- Carlo Milani and Agnese Trocchi, who have come to represent the hacker group C.I.R.C.E., "help" in designing new convivial technologies, opening their eyes to possible and practicable utopias.
