"Zanti, who was present at the opening, said it showcased the new languages in Italian art of our times and was meant to dispel popular notions about Italian art, pushing it back to times past. With globalisation there are no barriers dividing nations, and the exhibition was meant to explore the relationship of new Italian art and Marcel Duchamp, whose urinal ushered in a radical change in our perceptions of art. This exhibition contends that it was Duchamp and not Andy Warhol who had triggered off Pop art, and many of the works inspired by manga, TV shows for children, Alice in Wonderland, comic strips and the inescapable Bollywood — Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in the garb of superheroes."
