In many towns in Sardinia (Italy) there is a vast amount of street art and murales. The artists, some famous, some completely unknown, have left a very special sign in these cities that are visited for this particular artistic expression.

We see some countries that have been able to welcome important artistic initiatives of muralism.

In these towns the walls serve as a collective memory for the community, expressing the personality and character of the people alongside modern artistic expressions. Urban art is available to all and undoubtedly makes urban spaces often abandoned or degraded much more pleasant.

The tradition of murals in Sardinia (Italy) has several interesting examples. Several dozens of municipalities in the region entrust this

urban art with the task of urban decor which is often also a manifestation of remembrance, protest and commemoration. Let’s see another municipality and its street-art.

San Gavino

San Gavino is a village near Cagliari that has recently focused on the realization of murals and street art with appropriate initiatives to encourage the creation of graffiti involving several local artists but not just locals.

There are so many murals that you can see around the streets of the country. Some urban spaces are entirely dedicated to them like Eleonora D’Arborea Street or the “Music Square”.

The street dedicated to the sovereign Eleonora can be admired with valuable murals dedicated to the life of the village. The murals are in fact subject to the work and traditional activities of the community such as saffron harvesting, bread making, women’s embroidery, harvesting the fruits of the earth like lemons and figs of india.

A busy street dedicated to the life of this world that flows smoothly and without stress ….

One square, however, is entirely devoted to music and the great myths of pop and rock music such as David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, BoB Marley, John Lenon, Fabrizio de Andrè..

In some cases the contamination of urban and architectural degradation with these works sometimes creates some very special effects. The people now love these works and everyone turns into guides and are willing to give you directions or accompany you to discover these works.

    Love that last picture in particular – the contrast is arresting. Also really like the traditional scene. In Northern Ireland, we have a political form of street art from the 1960’s. Its original purpose is lost but the artistic expression remains. Cheers @sardart

    Veramente bello l’intreccio, collegamento tra arte (murales) e il muro storico. Solo da questa foto si potrebbe parlare all’infinito. Veramente bravo l’artista, un messaggio profondo con un semplice gioco di fili.
    Un saluto, nicola
