This project sees Pescara betting on contemporary urban muralism as a complementary tool to the actions of architectural and urban requalification in place. Fondazione Aria is the promoter of the project, with the artistic direction of Alessandro Sonsini, as well as an implementing body, together with the Municipality of Pescara.
The 2021 edition of the festival makes its debut with 550 square meters of murals, 4 international renowned artists, 3 urban sites, 2 neighborhood communities involved in the creative process of wall painting and 1 panel discussion featuring experts in the field to take stock of the transition from the 1900s Street Art to the new mode of expression and management that has been developing during the third millennium.
The initiative stems from the opportunities offered by the “Municipal regulation about the promotion of Street Art and Writing” approved in 2019; it becomes part of the social fabric of the city and tends to strengthen its identity, proposing an updated model of Street Art.
