Faber and the old town

"Faber and the old town (Fabrizio De Andrè 1940-1999) was a day of music, dance and art in a neighborhood of the historical center of Genoa , the old jewish ghetto, a place where nowaday immigrants, prostitutes, victims of slave trade, transsexuals, pushers and drug consumers live and work. The bet was to involve the most citizens, tourists, people of every race and colour, as possible to pull down, at least for a day, all the prejudices and for starting a process of tolerance and cohabitation. Nicola Villa was involved by a friend to be part of the event (organized by Comunità di San Benedetto al Porto, Comune di Genova, Fondazione De Andrè e Radio Popolare) and Villa realized a series of mixed technique panels for a street art installation. Villa prepared the background (mdf wood)with mural plaster, paper, and some acrylic color. Figures, made on really cheap paper with CoversAll ink in 640PP empty tank and in a hand made squeeze marker, are pasted on background like normal wheatpaste. "
