“The Globe” by Agostino Iacurci in San Basilio, Rome

In this blog we’ve already talked about SANBA, the urban redevelopment project of one of the most complicated areas in Rome by the street art. Part of this event is the wall “The Globe” by Agostino Iacurci that can be considered the symbol of this initiative. The artist creates a huge hand that holds a crystal ball where houses, trees and birds occupy tidily the space as an allegory of the same neighbourhood. Agostino Iacurci started as a graphic designer with a very personal style that he brings in urban interventions too. His world is made by simple lines and forms that captivates the spectators in an oneiric aesthetic that is always connected with the roots of the place. In this mural Agostino leaves apart his peculiar characters to focus on a very clear and precise message: to care of our world. It’s a parallelism with the reasons of the SANBA project in which they aim for a popular movement, especially from the same inhabitants of the area, to take care of the place where they live.
