Alen: people and words from Sarajevo

Words and people from Sarajevo: Alen“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Alen is an excellent pianist and opera singer. And most of all – for me – a very good friend. He lived and studied music in Sarajevo and his dream was always to live thanks to the music. Unfortunately he had to leave his beloved country because of lack of opportunities. After many years, thanks to his determination he went to Italy (his second country…) where he is now working as a singer. Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 2011 © Luca Bonacini.

Orgosolo street art

“When the missionaries came they had the Bible and we had the land. We closed our eyes and prayed. When we opened our eyes we had the Bible in our hands and they had our land.”
This is a quote of Desmond Tutu, joint to one of the many murals that show the social awareness of the people Orgosolo, a small village hidden in the mountains of Sardinia.
The village managed to leave behind a long and heavy heritage of violence and lack of social justice and turned Orgosolo on an extraordinary spot of street and social engaged art.
A local teacher, Francesco Del Casino, and a group of students launched the artistic and social process. Inspired by the Mexican muralists of the begin of the past century, students and local artists started to paint the walls of the village with stories of its past and to reproduce Italy’s and world’s main social and political events, from the slavery to the present time.
