Milano – The public can stroll among the 8 murals made by several young street artists of the collective, try augmented reality with which these works have increased, interact with them and play with gods quiz on the sustainability of the planet. The 8 works are focused on some of the most important objectives of the 2030 Agenda on sustainability and specifically:

  • Goal 2 – Defeating hunger

  • Goal 11 – Sustainable cities and communities

  • Goal 12 – Responsible consumption and production

The goal of this open-air artistic circuit it is to counteract passivity and reduced information on issues such as the environmental and food crisis as well as the architectural and urban decay of some areas of Milan. To this end, the shopkeepers of the areas concerned were also involved: the murals are in fact made directly on the shutters of the same and the owners become ambassadors of beauty and sustainability.

The route is absolutely free and free. Saturday 16 October starting at 19.00 i murals yes activate: augmented reality begins to come to life and just go in front of the work, frame the Qr Code connected to observe all the details, virtual and otherwise. In the evening we continue with the first Game of the Goose, mainly on the 4 murals in Isola area, while on the afternoon of Sunday 17th we mainly work on the other 4 murals in Sarpi area.
