Inside the cemetery of a small town in southern Italy, some elements that refer to consumerism and worldly life have been physically inserted.  The images create an immediate short-circuit, triggering reflections on contemporaneity and the spectacle of death. The places and elements, despite the apparent semantic contradiction, are in total harmony, a peaceful coexistence that generates new forms of contemplation and possible active participation by visitors to the cemetery. The cemeteries thus fulfill their primary function by supporting a different release of pain, far from a twilight conception of death that in Europe has always characterized the place. Moreover, the cemetery is a vast container of images, similar portraits that respond to a predefined iconography and are unchanged over time. Even the stone photographs, thanks to the addition of plastic elements and belonging to pop culture, have been censored and physically reworked with a contemporary aesthetic.
