Nicola Alessandrini‘s latest mural work in colaboration with artist and friend Nemo’s was created in San Martino in Pensilis, CB, Italy. Refering to Land burning because of neglect, because of brutal will, because of auto-da-fé, showing the remains and waste of a humanity inadequate to land. Among the stumps of burnt trees, birds return to fly – the only witness to nature’s untamed return to life.
Like every summer, many wooded areas throughout Italy were on fire due to several causes: the reckless action of man, arson, the effects of global warming and drought. The wall in San Martino in Pensilis was painted next to a natural area deeply wounded by a fire that broke out only a few days earlier. The image was born from our intimate need to share in that wound and as an ode to a nature that resists and exists despite everything.
