For the Utopia project, Piero Golia, a multimedia artist who inspires awe by subverting the rules, has chosen the word assenza (i.e. absence).
In this composition, the great absentee is clearly Napoleon Bonaparte, famously depicted by Jacques-Louis David between 1800 and 1803. The meaning of this word (“Being absent from a place where one should be or is usually found”) is restored by this piece inspired by Neo-Dada art;
however, the figure of the French emperor, portrayed on horseback in a glorious pose reminiscent of the classical statues, is completely wiped away.
