In the early seventies Mail artist Guglielmo Achille Cavellini predicts his death in 2014, and in 1971 he describes his work being part of a large retrospective at the Ducale Palace, Venice. This becomes part of the artist’s autostoricizzazione; self-historifisation. He loved the Italian flag tricolors and used them in his work. He created the “Cavellini sticker” always in red, white and green that bore the dates of the fast approaching Cavellini Centennial: 1914-2014. The above print shows his home-made self-historification, completed with the colours of the Italian flag.
