Pubblica is the name given to the project created by the cultural association – Kill The Pigs – a community of people that work on the promotion and distribution of visual arts- sponsored by the public administration of Selci, a jewel in the centre of the Sabina, in the Lazio region in Italy.
The first edition of Pubblica, artistic home of street art has been the most genuine and spontaneous response to the increasing request for more attention to the relationship between the living conditions of urban spaces, territorial culture and contemporary art. Hence relating different generations, creating a dialogue beteween them and making a connection between the orginal artistic codes and a more modern aesthetic and dynamic language.
Pubblica is understood as ‘of the public’, identifying itself in the public space, using this space by treating it as a primary good which should be taken care of, should be lived and enjoyed. Pubblica recognizes the metropolitan area as its natural habitat – explains the association Kill The Pigs – it expands its action to all those areas that manifest the necessity of a greater attention, that share the same motivations and the same goals.
By comparing the various artists that composed the new face of Selci, the real and most important objective of this project emerged: the multitude of different artistic codes that create the Urban Art movement. Various expressive styles like painting, photography, mosaic have been presented to demonstrate how Street Art is a far wider universe then what people may think, all of these build on techinque, aesthetic research, study and multiplicity of language.
The second phase of this project is to install a new section named didatticaPubblica, by the association Zebrart and Silvia Andreozzi. This section has the role to teach and instruct a young audience the new artistic expressions present in their city, to have an easier access to them, and with the presence and participation of the artists involved to raise awareness of this metamorfosis, also to invole a more mature and adult audience of tourists and people interested in the place.
