Published on the occasion of Rossella Biscotti, L’avvenire non può che appartenere ai fantasmi at the Museion Bolzano, Bozen, 31 January – 25 May 2015. The solo show, the artist’s first in an Italian museum, traced some of the key stages in her career, without being a retrospective. Biscotti responded to Museion’s invitation by creating new works and presenting traces of existing pieces – the exhibition includes casts of the 2009 project Le Teste in Oggetto, five bronze heads of King Vittorio Emanuele III and Benito Mussolini produced in 1942 for the Universal Expo in Rome, subsequently cancelled, and The Prison of Santo Stefano (2011-13), tracings of parts of the floor and cells of the prison in Italy’s Pontine Island.
