To protest deep cuts in arts funding, Director Antonio Manfredi of the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum in Naples has begun burning works of art from the museum’s permanent collection. Manfredi plans a systematic destruction — three a week — of the museum’s holdings as its “1,000 artworks are headed for destruction anyway because of the government’s indifference.” The artists whose paintings were burned on Tuesday supported the action.
