Street art is an art form that appears in public places, often illegally, with the most varied techniques: spry cans, artistic stickers, normographic art, the ephemeral art of the madonnari, video projections. The art of graffiti exploded in New York in the 1950s , bringing the figure of the street artist to the forefront. Street art, however, is not to be confused with graffiti, since the latter is to be considered a separate category, visually and conceptually different, belonging to Hip Hop culture.
3D Anamorphism – Despite seeming like a complicated word, anamorphosis is nothing more than a strongly distorted image that acquires its “true form” only when the viewer is placed in a particular position, more inclined with respect to the image plane. Anamorphosis is often used in street art. Many artists create more or less complex images on the pavement of squares and sidewalks; others have used it to make real urban redevelopment interventions.
The Art of the Madonnaro is more long-lived than the modern but more well-known techniques – in fact, we can find citations of it in European letters from the sixteenth century. The madonnari perform their works with plaster, chalk or other poor and ephemeral material, on roads, concrete or sidewalks of urban centers.The name derives from the fact that initially the Madonnaro performed only sacred images, while today they can space on any subject.
By Urban Regeneration we mean those actions of recovery and redevelopment of pre-existing buildings, especially in the most degraded suburbs, limiting the consumption of land while at the same time safeguarding the landscape and the environment, with special attention to sustainability.
The regeneration of buildings or other spaces is often joined by cultural, social, economic and environmental interventions, aimed at improving the quality of life, in accordance with the principles of environmental sustainability and urban participation.
