Italian artist Rosaria Matarese looks at one of her creations as it burns in front of the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum, near Naples, Wednesday, April 18, 2012. This is the second creation Antonio Manfredi, the director of the museum, burnt, the day before he burned a painting by a French artist, to protest shortage of funds. Manfredi threatened to burn paintings if financial aid wasn't promised. Italy's museums have been chronically short of funds for decades, but art world officials say the economic crisis has aggravated their pligh. (AP Photo/Franco Castano)
