description

Posacesare is a project born from the italian naïve union of two words: posacenere (ashtray) and Cesare. POSACESARE is an object of an ambiguous, contradictory and irreverent nature. His claim is simultaneously to raise the status of the ashtray and at the same time to desecrate the historical consciousness of the bust by relegating it to a mere functional object. POSACESARE is the result of an operation of subtraction of two archetypal symbols from their relative semantic fields of meaning consolidated over the years. POSACESARE is nothing more than a bust of Caesar with an ashtray at its upper end.
