Icone Del Passato [Icones of the Past] (1978)
The project series documents "Icone Del Passato" an installation showing a hammer and sickle representing ideologies' icons described by Pettena as "icons of the past." "The time of ideologies, which deeply influenced actions of men in the nineteenth century, is now over. Just some icons remain, no longer in use, hung to a wall on a nail." 
The project series contains photographs showing the two tools hanging on a nail and a photograph showing similar tools hanging in a room.
