We Want Everything - Nanni Balestrini

| /
“I want everything, everything that's owed to me,” he tells them. “Nothing more and nothing less, because you don't mess with me.”

It was 1969, and temperatures were rising across the factories of the Northern Italy as workers demanded better pay and conditions. Soon, discontent would erupt in what became known as Italy’s “Hot Autumn.” The novel explores this explosive uprising, following a young worker from his arrival at a car factory in Turin, his struggles against appalling work conditions, the revolt of union workers, up to the moment they take their protest to the streets, the slogan “We want everything” ringing through the streets.
