Mira: words and people from Sarajevo

“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. “Bums on the street” is the expressive slogan raised by Mira Potocki, against the passivity of the people who accept with resignation the bad economic and social situation of the country. According to Mira, 63 year’s old, “people here do not live, they just survive”. Mira does not receive any pension and she has to take care to her son who was seriously injured during the war. Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, April 2014 © 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.
