Our walls, what an art!
Along the outskirts of large cities were seen as sad and lonely places, often born as "dormitories", apparently provided by every service, but essentially marginal. But what if you begin to beautify and color these places? Quality of life can also improve through the aesthetics of the neighborhood where you live, where you are most motivated to stay. It is born of this principle - and from the quote "The words are not walls" by the Austrian poet and writer Rainer Maria Rilke - the project Muracci Nostri, a popular initiative that wants to bring the impact of street art impact on the outskirts of the suburbs.
First colors in Primavalle
At first it was the neighborhood of Primavalle where it is easy to remain pleasantly affected by the works of numerous writers (famous and not). If you want to go to a "safe stop", do not miss Tell me a story and the voice of lovers, made by Gomez, at the Parco della Santa Maria della Pietà. The black and white hands of the artist have translated on the four walls of a building, on which he painted together with 200 hands of elementary school children, Forte Braschi, the disabled of the day care center social center Bamboo and the community Outside the tunnel Of ASL Rome E. From painting emerges a message that is both an invitation, a cry of help, a request for love: "If you hide me, touch me and be kind"; "If I get hold of me and be strong"; "If you hide me, guide me and be patient"; "If my words disappoint us in the sadness created we will be sorry."
A dedication to Alda Merini
A definite work is The Bee and the Moon, a portrait of Alda Merini performed with drill and color by the artist Beetrot. A clear homage to the life of the poet who through this design lives a sort of redemption, just where he was a longtime guest, in the hospital that was known as the largest asylum in Europe. On the Beetrope wall, there is space for all those who want to write their own punch for a Merini, making his work a continuous work, like poetry.
Wanting for humanity and peace
Continuing, let yourself be moved by Monica Pirone Hugs-lovers, realized with the involvement of the Macondo residential rehabilitation facility, which stylizes women's figures in the act of embrace. The need for contact and human involvement remains the work of all the works, such as the Pinocchio by Carlo Lommi, who travels for Mare Meum, Afromachia and always finds himself waiting for something among these murals all focused on the issue of migrants. Closes the Jerico trip, among the 100 most famous writers in the world, who made the face of a sleeping man and named The Great Peace. The desire of all humanity.
