Piero Manzoni’s “Merda d'artista” is the object of desire of every museum and collector; it is one of the icons of the avant-garde art and one of its most persistent myths. Since the date of its creation, in 1961, the artwork has been surrounded by a legendary aura concerning its content, the artist’s intent, the escalation of prices of which it was the centre. It is object of legends and, of course, of irony, parody, controversy and fierce rejection, that associate it with the scandal-artwork par excellence of the century, Fountain by Marcel Duchamp.
