Our friend Opiemme recently painted a new collective mural painted with the partecipation of 1000 children from 3 to 13 years old of the school “I.C. Via Giuseppe Messina” in Rome, Italy. The children chose negative words to be deleted by throwing eggs filled with colors in a collective performance that were accompanied by some positive words that the children suggested. The mural also represents constellation of Pisces – a symbol of renaissance.
