The group Banda 22 Ottobre or Terzo Radio GAP was founded in October 1969 in Genoa, the city with very strong resistance by partisans against the German occupation during World War II. Radio GAP was the first group taking part at the armed struggle ‚Lotta Armata’ (armed struggle). The name ‚Gruppi d’Azione Partigiana’ refers to the history of the partisans and at the same time uses a contemporary medium of communication: the television. Other groups such as the Brigate Rosse informed about their actions with leaflets. Radio GAP directly brought the information to the public, in their living rooms. After the news, during the advertising, their messages interrupted the programme’s sound. They choose a strategy of propaganda similar to an artistic action, a communication guerrilla, as in the Situationist movement happening at the same time in Paris.
