“I am Orson Welles.
I never really wanted to join Roma Europa Web Factory.
I understand the beauty and significance of a fake.
As for my style, for my vision of the cinema, editing is not simply one aspect; it’s the aspect.
Fake is as old as the Eden tree.
Today I believe that man cannot escape his destiny to create whatever it is we make:
jazz, a wooden spoon, or graffiti on the wall.
All of these are expressions of man’s creativity, proof that man has not yet been destroyed by technology.
But are we making things for the people of our epoch or repeating what has been done before?
And finally, is the question itself important?
We must ask ourselves that.
The most important thing is always to doubt the importance of the question.
I am Orson Welles.
I never really wanted to join Roma Europa Web Factory.”

Orson Welles is one of the most influential artists of the contemporary era, touching the domains of cinema, theatre, fiction, radio in a continuous research that trespasses the borders between art, communication, psychology, performance.
His works gave us the chance to perceive art’s transformation, in a form in which art and falsificaion are divided by boundaries that are ethereal and fluid, eventually overlaying and touching.

Orson Welles’ “the War of the Worlds” radio performance was rejected by the RomaWuropa Web Factory competition.

“This is not original work!” was the scream of the Jury.

“I am Andy Warhol.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
A fake, a fake, what is a fake, anyway?
Nothing is real, the only real things are the ones
that you can reproduce, and make millions of them.
Take a thing everybody knows, change it a bit, and claim it as yours.
This is what our world is about.
We can do it! This is what we should do.
I am Andy Warhol.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
Noone cares about originality. Originality is just too hard to define.
Go to a supermarket, buy one of everything, and expose it in a gallery.
This is what we should do.
I am Andy Warhol.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.”

Andy Warhol’s appropriations of the images and of the media, performed by mechanically reproducing commercial products and celebrity images in silkscreens, smooth paintings and facsimiles, poetically expressed some of the most striking and relevant approaches to art of the 20th century. Andy Warhol’s video was rejected from the videoart section of the RomaEuropa Web Factory.

“This is not original work!” was the scream of the Jury.

“I am William Burroughs.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
Damn those bloody suckers couldn’t tell art if it hit them in the forehead.
Deep shadows, close down over culture when culture is not able to catch up with the world it lives in.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
I could not participate because I am an old man, cutting up pieces of paper, lookig for hidden poetry, forgotten literatures in things that have been thrown away, forgotten, put away, stashed in the trash.
I am William Burroughs.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.”

William Burroughs, famous for his cut-up technique, allowing for the creation of beautiful literature compositions by remixing pieces of existing works, was rejected from the literature section of the RomaEuropa Web Factory.

“This is not original work!” was the scream of the Jury.
