The Barcelona of the 1970s was a breeding ground for an underground countercultural movement known as just that: the “underground”. A movement that was just as silenced as it was influential in building the modern, cosmopolitan and creative image that the city has projected to the rest of the world. Freedom, creation, breaking away and fiesta were a few of the guiding principles of the group that had decided to create a parallel reality to the one endured by the rest of the mortals (repression, dictatorship, economic crisis). Some of those youths fell by the wayside (their lives destroyed by drugs, alcohol and later on, AIDS); others are now artists, musicians, writers… and even business execs and prominent politicians! Mariscal, Nazario, Montesol, Onliyú, Pau Riba, Pepe Ribas, Marta Sentís, Quim Monzó, Oriol Tramvia, Miguel Gallardo, Luis Racionero and Josep M. Martí Font, among others, describe what it was like to live in that era of fiesta and utopia.
