Some Call Him Pig (1971)
The project series documents "Some Call him Pig," a photograph taken by Petenna of billboard produced by the Minneapolis police department to promote the merits of police officers and respond to the slang term "pigs" used to refer to policemen. The billboard shows a policeman holding an unconscious child in his arms and practicing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. "Pettena underlined its 'contradiction in terms' and unintentional irony, incomprehensible to the Americans of the mid-west." 
The project series contains a photograph of the billboard and project description in English and Italian.
