Street art as urban redevelopment but also as an instrument to purify the air we breathe: it seems fantasy and yet it is already a reality. It is the largest ecological mural in all of Europe and is ready to be inaugurated in the heart of Rome, close to one of the busiest streets of the capital: we are at Via del Porto Fluviale, right in front of the mural realized a few years ago Blue artist.
Here Federico Massa, aka Iena Cruz, has created 1000 square meters paintings that will be equivalent to a forest of 30 trees. Federico, Milanese street artist, has been living in New Yor for 8 years, where he works as a muralist and set designer; his wall will be titled 'Hunting Pollution', literally 'Hunting for Pollution' and is a wave motif reminiscent of the sea and covering the two sides of the building, one on Via del Gazometro, the other on Via del Porto Fluviale .
Drops falling from the sky, a heron that stands out on the facade with a fish in its beak: the entire mural was created with Airlite painting, which has the characteristic of capturing polluting powders turning them into salts. The painting will be completed in the coming days and it is born thanks to the passion of a young entrepreneur and patron, Veronica De Angelis, owner of the entire building. Heir of the family of builders, the young man has spent his life between Italy and the United States and wanted to pursue a project that he pursued for years, to "change the connotations" to his palaces and at the same time make a gift to Rome.
