Nic Alessandrini at Stigliano for AppARTEngo Festival 2020-10-10

Nic Alessandrini at Stigliano for AppARTEngo Festival

Nicola Alessandrini who has been working for many years in the field of urban art, presents to us his latest work which is now visible in the city of Stigliano. Enjoy the series of photos and a short synopsis about  it. The artwork was created for the festival AppARTEngo in Stigliano (Matera, Italy).

Povr M’nocidd! / Poor Monacicchio!
In the Stiglianese tradition, a Monacicchio is the wandering soul of a child who passed away without baptism. He usually shows up during the day or at dawn, but according to local tradition his mischievous jokes take place during the night. The only way to ward off his jokes is by taking off his long red hat: if you manage to pull it off, the poor Monacicchio will throw himself at your feet in tears.

Just like society, which feels lost when it loses its identifying symbols, remaining anchored to momentary archetypes and a timeless crystallization of its own tradition. And then the night falls.
