We will take you to a mysterious place that little one has heard and known, and is full of joyful graffiti creation. We will talk about the role of mural in shaping the image of the city, decorative functions and gentrification processes. We look inside the painted walls without stopping our eyes on superficial, colorful views. We will look critically at the phenomenon of street art, trying to break down stereotypes and images of mural.
