“Street Art in Padua with the Biennale is connected to ‘urbs picta’ because it is the capital of frescoes: frescoes from the ‘300, frescoes from the third millennium – underlines the councilor for culture Andrea Colasio -. We intervened in many neighborhoods, with an intervention that modifies the perception and self-representation of places. Art here changes the identity and perception of an object, it can be a wall, an industrial or service building, as in this case, not particularly significant in themselves , which thus takes on another value.
It is a cultured and refined intervention, it is a way to fully decline the past and the present, the fourteenth century of the urbs picta and the art for all of the third millennium “. (ANSA).
