In 2010 happens that the name Nemo immediately evokes the little fish protagonist of the Pixar Movie in 2003. If this question had been asked in the end of the XIX century probably the answer would have been the Captain Nemo protagonist of the book written by Verne in 1870: twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Going futher in time, around the 800 b.C, Nemo should have been the name choosen by Odisseo to deceive Polifemo the cyclops of the Homer epic poem. Despite I deeply feel a man of my era, the greek origins of my native land make me associate Nemo to Odisseo. A project born between the drawing by Ponti of 1950 "Un disegno è un'idea" and the romance by Pirandello of 1926 "Uno, nessuno e centomila" for creating a new identity without sexual and geographical features. An identity denied for a renewed idea of collectivity made of eyes that search each others beyond the borders and barriers.
