This book, whose title is the epitaph on Marcel Duchamp’s tombstone, is one of several initiatives that we have developed around the theme of death, starting from “The Celebration of the Living (who reflect upon death)”, and is based on a conversation held in Rome on January 19, 2014, in the form of an “exquisite corpse”.
