Millo in Italy

Francesco Giorgino, aka Millo created this stunning mural titled “Blind” for Impronte 2016 festival in Avellino, Campagnia, Italy, which is an event dedicated to street art, inspired by Salvatore Ferragamo – famous designer and craftsman born in Bonito in 1898. The mural was inspired by “Rainbow shoes” that were designed by Ferragamo for renowned actress Judy Garland while she was acting in The Wizard of Oz in 1938.

In one of the first scenes of the movie the protagonist Dorothy sings the song (Somewhere) Over the Rainbow written by Harold Arlen. The song, the colorful movie sets and a series of historical circumstances were conducive to the creation of this shoe. In those years Ferragamo began working with the Sardinian cork (a poor material that was absolutely unknown in the footwear industry).

In his artwork Millo captures the magical atmosphere and the story held in the Rainbow shoe. He also describes the human being and the his inability to understand his own magic.

Who Is Agostino Iacurci?

Agostino Iacurci is an artist born in Foggia in 1986, he lives and works in Rome.
In his works of synthetic forms and bright colors, through an essential language, he is capable of driving multiple layers of interpretation.
This approach places his tales on the perennial threshold between innocence and artifice, serenity and catastrophe, in a magnetic tension that is the interpretive key to our very existence.*
His style is very unique and always shows perfectly clean lines.

Woman With Aloe Vera Plant

Recent mural by Fintan Magee in Sapri, Salerno, Italy titled “Woman With Aloe Vera Plant”.
His mural is based on Grant Woods painting ‘Woman with Plants’.
“This painting depicts a local woman in the small town of Sapri in South of Italy. The mural references the social realist tradition of painting regular people within their working environment and celebrates the role of motherhood in South Italian communities. The Aloe Vera plant can be seen growing in many gardens and balconies in the local area and is also important to the artist personally because during his childhood, his own mother grew the plant, often using it to help heal his cuts or bruises if he was injured.”

I Live Here

Powerfull piece by NemO’s in San Berillo Catania, Italy.
NemO’s explained the message behind his mural “Abito qui (I live here)” on his instagram:
“San Berillo is an historic district in the center of Catania. Today, the majority of these homes are uninhabited and often abandoned. In the 50s San Berillo became the red-light district of the city and nowadays it’s a very closed area avoid by the majority of people.
Some prostitutes have resisted the demolition in the 50s and now they live here with migrants, pushers and the new generation of prostitutes.
They are women about 60/70 years old that have lived the history of the districts and its trasformations. They are “consenting” prositutes and have chosen their profession. This women work jet, they stay outside home and wait their customers. The “historic” prostitutes are the real landlord of this district.
San Berillo is ignored and ghettoized by the citizens of Catania and so this area undergoes continuous speculative attacks.”
