The 27th G8 Summit was held in Genoa, Italy, on July 21–22, 2001.
It came one year after the Seattle G8 and is remembered as the peak of the worldwide anti-globalization movement, as well as for the brutality against demonstrators. The protests and riots continued for a week. The footage here was shot over three days, then smuggled out of Italy following the Summit in fear of confiscation at the border.
