Giulio Vesprini’s latest mural is titled “E SOM DAL GATTO – Struttura G069” and is painted for the “Gattaglio district” in Reggio Emilia. The artist painted the mural with the neighbourhood residents to tell their stories through colours and symbols.
“The work was made possible thanks to the synergy between local institutions and the private world, to redevelop and regenerate a suburban space in the city, enriching it with meanings strongly connected with the life of the place. I reinterpreted this facade with elements of colour and graphic structures that have clear references to the life of the Social Centre and that emerged during the meetings held with residents of the area. Yellow represents the walkway that connects the district to the Crostolo embankment, the round signs are a dedication to the game of bowls and football, green and blue are the synthesis of water and nature present in the district with a reference to the Gatto Azzurro and the crostolo stream that joins the Po river. The red, on the other hand, recalls the colours I mapped in the neighbourhood. “Graziano Tura, president of the Gattaglio social centre, underlined, among other things, the beauty of the common experience of members and inhabitants of the neighbourhood in the relationship and collaboration with the artist:” Giulio Vesprini is now truly one of us.” Giulio Vesprini
The mural was painted with help from the City Hall of Reggio Emilia and Fidenza VillageCentro Sociale “Gatto Azzurro” Agency 4.4_Art Milano.
