Many years ago in Piazza del Plebiscito the so-called popped up "Capuzzelle" that baffled the Neapolitans during the Christmas period: small iron skulls surfaced from the pavement of the square that was transformed, for a long period, into an open-air version of the Camposanto delle Fontanelle.

In the intentions of the Chinese artist Liu Ruowang and the Neapolitan artist Milot, who collaborated closely with him, the gigantic installation intends to represent the dangers which threaten, from a natural and social point of view, the existence of the human race and consequently the work wants to encourage humanity to face adversity with courage and perseverance.
