Muri sicuri: street art for the earthquake victims
"Let's paint a wall to cure a hundred" is the motto of the initiative promoted by the Guides of Rome to raise funds for victims of the earthquake through the discovery of Rome's street art.
The initiative is called "Muri Sicuri" (Safe Walls) and will take place Saturday 19 and Sunday 20, November in the streets of Torpignattara, the historic neighborhood on the outskirts of Rome, which in recent years is experiencing a great enhancement thanks to urban and contemporary art.
A group of about one hundred guides of Rome will voluntary bring people to discover the most interesting walls of the district. An initiative that combines urban art and solidarity, as the participants will support the areas affected by the earthquake in central Italy with a free donation.
The event is sponsored by the V Municipality of Rome and will also allow people to admire a live performance by street artist Carlos Atochementre who will paint a big wall.
Muri Sicuri is an initiative promoting on one hand the art and beauty of the Roman heritage and on the other invites people to attend the reconstruction and preservation of the national heritage. Not only an opportunity to paint a wall, as well as to reinforce pre-existing walls, those who have succumbed due to the tragic earthquake and now are gone.
Reservation is required to attend the event.
The program also includes tours with English-speaking guides, aperitifs and entertainment for children.
