“Armi Improprie” by Italo Cremona
Why these etchings, these wrong weapons? At the beginning, I thought to be able to explain my weapons with a comparison to those who, for some accidents, are due to stay in a home seclusion, and seem to be the prisoners who want to get away by threatening the guards with guns made of bread blackened with shoe polish. Italo Cremona
