In the first, depicting an impressive image of Benito Mussolini, was born almost by chance. Guccione photographs this object from a lowered angle, turning it into a monument on a background of warm, slightly sour colours. The similarity is caught afterwards. And he, the artist, with his usual readiness to seize the cue and his desire to play, takes pleasure in it. This is how the series was born. And he now obtains the resemblance of any subject to its skull – since the resemblance does exist, seriously, net of all subsequent additions - by entrusting the realization of the raw material (i.e. precisely the skull) to a German company, starting from the actual face, is able to infer the features of the skull.
