The Street Project
The Street project is part of the I Giardini d'Arte di Via Caravaggio one, even if the artistic contamination took place beyond the company's borders: on the wall of the railway that runs along the municipal road where Carlo Maresca SpA has its headquarters.
The aim of the project was to embellish an aboandoned area of the city and make it a sort of open-air "art gallery".
The works were created by six writers of international origin who delivered to the Adriatic capital an artistic intervention of considerable proportions: six panels 2 metres high and 3 metres wide.
The artists involved were Antonello Piccinino (MACS), the collective Bane&Pest, composed of the Swiss Fabian Florin and the Cypriot Yiannis Hadjipanayis, Giorgio Bartocci, the Frenchman of Spanish origin Juan Pablo de Ayguavives (Popay), Manuel Di Rita (Peeta) and the collective Vincenzo Mastroiorio and Maria Teresa Checchia, known as Caktus&Maria.
The interventions made are very different from each other, ranging from the more conceptual Giorgio Bartocci, Peeta and Popay to the closest to the figurative taste of Bane&Pest, MACS and Caktus&Maria.
The project was made possible thanks to the artist Antonello Piccinino, who mediated with the other writers involved, and the collaborations that Carlo Maresca SpA has signed with the Municipality of Pescara and the Italian State Railways Group.
