A character freely inspired by the artist Mimmo Rotella (1918-2006), avant-garde of Nouveau Rèalisme and Pop Art. In a culturally active Catanzaro, he discovered the power of colour through the hats made by his mother, an appreciated milliner. Then, the urge to measure himself against the world and a bohemian life often experimenting, culminated i in 1953, in an epiphany that will define the theft of reality: the ripped advertising poster. Rotella rabidly steals pieces of skin from the street and gives life to the Dècollage, artworks telling cinema and economic boom in which Dadaist disorder and materic informal blend into a new and stratified language that transforms urban space into an open-air museum, ephemeral, heart breaking and very pulsating.
