From The Roots To The Flower


Ortona, Italy


First part of a double mural realized in Ortona, Chieti for Art Bike and Run on the new bycicle lane of the Trabocchi coast.

The lane built on the abandoned railway track built in the late 1800, runs for now along 42 km of the Adriatic coast surrounded by the sea and the nature.

A mural rooted in the past and bloomed in the present.

I took the inspiration from the historical events happened here during the second world War, the sadly famous battaglia of Ortona,  on the Gustav line, the efforts off all the inhabitants and the  strength of the partisan’s.

My character today stands surrounded by a field of poppies, a flower symbol of Partisans, I wanted him to be a tribute and at the same time an invitation to visit this beautiful piece of land.
