Goal 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities

The Street art for Rights project was born with the intention of bringing art to neighborhoods with difficult contexts on the outskirts of Rome, adopting the 17 Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations and filtering them with the eye of contemporary art. The goal is to give artistic substance to the action plan for people, the planet and prosperity promoted by the UN, bringing the community closer to the various themes and encouraging discussion about the pressing problems of the contemporary era.

In this third edition the artists, selected for their civil commitment as well as for their sign and artistic impact, have created 8 walls in the Settecamini, Ponte Mammolo and San Paolo districts, dedicated to the Global Goals from 10 to 17 of the Agenda 2030. All the artists have returned, each from their own personal point of view, a powerful image of the key concept of sustainable development. Furthermore, all the walls were made using the special paints of the AirLite patent, products that are able to transform polluting agents into salt molecules and start the photosynthesis process. 

Goal 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities 

Gothic-punk illustrator Davide Toffolo and Marqus have translated the theme of urban pollution through satire, depicting an enormous gorilla as king of a city with undefined borders and extension. A direct criticism of contemporary consumerism, maximum urbanisation and disrespect for the environment.

 Obiettivo 11 - Città e comunità sostenibili

L’illustratore graffiante in stile gothic-punk Davide Toffolo ha tradotto insieme a Marqus il tema dell’inquinamento urbano attraverso la satira, raffigurando un enorme gorilla, come re di una città dai bordi e dall’estensione indefinita. Una critica diretta al consumismo contemporaneo, all’urbanizzazione massima e al non rispetto nei confronti dell’ambiente.
