Kids having funKids from the Huampis indian community of Villa Gonçalo having fun. Today, the 20th of november, marks the day on which the United Nations adopted in 1989 the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The four core principles of the Convention are non-discrimination; devotion to the best interests of the child; the right to life, survival and development; and respect for the views of the child. Surprisingly, United States is one of only three countries in the world which have not ratified the Convention. Villa Gonçalo, Peru, April 2008 © 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.
