In Palmyra an archaeological site thousands of years old has become one of the central poles of the complex Syrian conflict. Alternatively Putin's Russia together with the Syrian regular army of Assad contended the site with fundamentalists of the Islamic state in a pull and spring that has highlighted the importance of the symbolic aspect of antiquity, and allows us to reason on our relationship with the past, properly today that images have become so important. The recycling of archival materials belonging to different sources, all revolving around the theme of images and of our relationship with the past, rhyme and mimic the "recycling" to which Palmyra's triumphal arch is subject, put back on its feet through 3D printers from universities and western companies, in a theater escalation of the absurd that has as its protagonist the work of art and behind it its creator (or destroyer): man.
