Also from Cella, Caos Primigenio occupies an entire rough concrete wall inside a square courtyard in via Umberto I. It is a "collection" of faces with different morphologies, but painted with the same colors (dominant is red), randomly arranged as if they were cells immersed in a sort of primordial soup caught in the process of organizing themselves to give life to a vital tissue. They are humanoid faces made independent of the body, probably bewildered and thoughtful whether to organize themselves to give life to a crowd and, perhaps, to a real population. Even this being-there (being specific identities) but merging (blending together indiscriminately) can be read as the expression of a sort of unease capable of emerging already in the early stages of an existence.
