The events organised by the Municipality of Pisa to celebrate the genius of Keith Haring, the New York artist who created the large mural entitled Tuttomondo on a wall of the church of Sant'Antonio in Pisa, continue. On Sunday 6 March, a series of initiatives dedicated to the artist considered the father of street art will be held in the city.
It will be a great travelling festival," says culture councillor Pierpaolo Magnani, "starting in front of Keith Haring's mural and moving on to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza del Carmine, Piazza XX Settembre and Palazzo Blu, with shows, dance, video mapping and music.
