The 90s began with the fall of the Berlin Wall and ended with The September 11 attacks. Years of creativity and destruction, everything seemed both possible and close to collapse.

Those were also the golden years of Italian tourism: the Adriatic coast was the destination of a generation answering the call of dance music. And there appeared the iconic pyramid-shaped nightclub called Cocoricò.

Cocoricò was not just a disco, it was a temple of entertainment, a theater of artistic, political and social expressions: a place that welcomed the emotions and anguish of past and present times.

Cocoricò Tapes is its story told through the unpublished found footage from those years and through the words – from today and back then – of former Art Director Loris Riccardi, his staff and those who attended the Club every week in a collective ritual.
