Ferrara, Palazzo dei Diamanti, 1968

Second episode of the trilogy that commenced with Carabinieri, and realized with similar materials, this installation harks back to another stereotype, typical of hypocritical rhetoric and the ceremonies staged by politicians and generals. A sort of “let’s take up arms and be off” that was particularly odious for people, like Gianni Pettena at the time of this performance, aged twenty or just over.
