Castelbosco, a small fraction of the beautiful Piacenza, hosts one of the most particular museums of its kind: the Shit Museum.
Starting from the basic idea that “there is no transformation without production”, its creator has created a new material completely making it the protagonist of a large structure. But, above all, by unhinging stereotypes and clichés.
Thus, from a material considered waste, a completely new product has been created in which matter, more than form, becomes central.
Thus, admiring vases, flower holders, tiles, plates, bowls, jugs, the thought cannot fail to go to the substance of which they are made, making it one of the strangest and most unique places of its kind.
After the visit, don’t forget to buy one of the items at the Museum Shop.
