About the image of Memorie Urbane 2014, art director Davide Scarpantonio says that the three subjects representing three different age levels tell a double story: “That of the public, because the work of art and communication reaches everyone. And that of street-artist, because his passion begins in childhood, grows over the years and ends at the end of the creative process. Assuming that there is an end”.

A dialogue between past and present, between art and public spaces, the project aims is to rediscover the city through urban contemporary art that becomes a means to give new life to areas that are usually overlooked, abandoned and without a qualification.
