Italy is going through a moment of transition, it perceives its roots as a burden, something to get rid of. In this way it launches an impetus towards the future. Materials science would call it a phase transition, a system going through a change in its physical properties.

Icons and faces, which do not belong to this time, try to hide in plain sight, like a museum next to its own inauguration.
