The gray of Milan, a city depicted with all its historic buildings, and the ‘bombs’ of color, which represent the dreams and enthusiasm of the young people ready to live it. ‘The rhythm of Milan’, the mural inaugurated yesterday inside the Galilei institute, is the symbol of the possible synthesis between different worlds and the ability to imagine one’s future, putting dreams into play, in a city that is always on the move and capable of renewing itself. It was created, as part of a PCTO project (former work-school alternation), were 4 students from the graphic design school of the Galilei-Luxemburg technical and professional institute and 3 students from the Tito Livio classical dance high school, a school that has located in the San Siro area near 6 of its classes.
And the choice of the space identified to create the mural is not accidental: the atrium that gives access to the dance halls used by the choreutist and to the mechanics workshops of the professional. “The contrast between mechanics and dance brings to the highest level that between scientific and humanistic activities” underlines the director of the regional school office, Augusta Celada, who “in the explosion of color that slides over the gray city” also sees “our happiness and of the boys for this school year started again in the presence “.
The mural was created between the end of August and the beginning of September by the seven students flanked by the artists of the Art Mall gallery, who guided them through the various phases: from the hand-made reproduction of the main symbols of Milan (the Duomo and the San Siro stadium above all ) on the lower part of the walls, at the launch of the paint balloons to decorate the upper part. This action “represents an outburst based on the choice of colors to launch, which – explains Simone Volpin, one of the artists who supported the boys – represent the various emotions that make up the universe of Milan. They are contrasting and overwhelming. , but by mixing they form a single wall “.
And the experience, which for the headmaster of Tito Livio, Giorgio Galanti, represents “the product of collaboration between all the positive components of the school world”, satisfied the students. “It doesn’t happen every day to be able to do such a thing – says Rebecca R., graphics student at Galilei Luxemburg – It was fun and I enjoyed working together with the other guys. I think the result is very good”. Annamaria Borando, head of the Galilei-Luxemburg school, is also convinced of this, bringing attention to the installation depicting two sheep, placed in the room: “They are there to remind everyone that they are the sheep, while we must stand out and commit ourselves to make our dreams come true “.
