On Saturday, November 18th at 15.30, at the Leopolda Station in Pisa, will be held RONZII - urban art in the tears, the debut event of the collective of young cultural operators FUCO - Fucina Contemporanea.

The indoor program will be preceded by a guided tour of the main street art festivals. The tour, organized with the collaboration of CTT Compagnia Toscana Trasporti, will start at 10.30 am from the Keith Haring mural in Piazza Sant'Antonio and, on a bus, will take the participants to the districts of Porta a Mare and Sant'Ermete to discovery of the murals made in summer 2017.
At 3.30 pm in the Historical Hall of the Leopolda Station, the event will be introduced by a multi-party conference coordinated by prof. Sergio Cortesini of the University of Pisa, during which a large group of local, Italian and international realities will reflect on the role of urban art in renovating public spaces and regenerating the social fabric. The cult Total Panic event, the reclamation of the popular district of Sant'Ermete, the Festival Welcome to Pisa, the regional project Tuscany's Urban Colors Correction, the European project Recovering the future and the experience of the Sicilian cultural center Farm Cultural Park will be the main comparative references. Thanks to the collaboration with ZaLab and the Arsenale Cinema, the conference will end with the screening of IBI, the docufilm by Andrea Segre, which collects the precious testimony of Ibitocho Sehounbiatou, a photographer and director who immigrated irregularly to Italy, whose photographic exhibition will be set up at ' inside Leopolda.
