Nardò, 2022

I had the chance to paint in the wonderful town of Nardò surrounded by the most welcoming people I've ever met, close to an amazing sea. This mural is part of a riqualification project started from  playground and facade enhancing and then completed with my artwork.

I was asked to portray Salvatore Napoli Leone, a great inventor and multidisciplinary genius of the early 20th century. I am not a big fan of memorial murals, but for the patrons it was essential to have his face depicted, so I maximized the request by creating a clone pattern. The result is half a joke about the need to portray the face of the commemorator at all costs and half a story about the history of this great man who was able to reinvent himself several times throughout his existence.
