Experience: the Making of a Happening

Revisiting Ginsberg in the Beat Cosmopolitan Light


The aim of the experience is to draw the happening in the spirit of the beat feeling of reciprocal understanding, simultaneity of presence in time and space, sharing of feelings and purpose, and something mystical too.

This approach is manifested in its purposes through by the opening verses of the Ginzberg’s Howl, where the desperate substitution of a spiritual experience through by the addiction of some drugs is denounced as a mistake. Through by that words, collective imaginary is penetrated by the need of a new and different spirituality, to be shared beyond current religious boundaries.

This concept is developed focusing inside this the great request for spirituality emerging from the waves of beat literature, reversing jazz into rock music, pushing the Beatles in India or the Rolling Stones in Morocco.  In both these choices there is a beat breathe, which can be explained through by the Ginzberg’s Indian Journal in the first case, and with the Tangeri’s connection in the second.

Going further with these suggestions, the happening will be held in the height of the volcano Etna, involving people from all around the world to share an experience whose result will be – together with the short essay forged within the methodology of anthropology and social sciences – a docufilm where the experience THE ETNA PIPER will be recorded, as a demo of its repliability and transferability.

The experience we want to express through by this study is related to the special work the Author – with his home-founded organization Fondazione M – has been carrying out, within a logical framework inside which pose an experimental action to be lived and shared in fullness of emotion and understanding.


Being part of the EBSN since the first AGM, Davide C. Crimi concentrated his research on the ground of once called “non-academic sources” of beat literature, to give evidence to the special relation between beat literature and emancipation. This special approach mixes the effectiveness of the performance value of poetry with its social and political meaning.  A recent essay was published in nr. X of Academicus Journal).

What we are calling «Docufilm» will be the synthesis and the mix of the elements drawn in the essay’s abstract, composing both an experiment on individual and collective (of the group)  awareness, a retrospective on the model of the «happening» as special event to attend which people may arrive from all around the world according to the model that modern economy calls «integrated relational tourism», to be performed – after an intensive two-days residential stage – in a special naturalistic landscape (in this case, the higher side of the volcano Etna).  The artistic expression is improved by a parallelism with the «Hymn to Pan» model coming from the Joujouka model, which is part of early Mediterranean mythology, offering an exceptional psychic panorama, working on something very close to archetype’s deep psychology.
