SCANNU - Transumanze Project in Graniti

The mural shows the old art of “Scannu” making. A Scannu is a small seat made of plant stems of chervil (Anthriscus sylvestris). Here, the artist blends his work into the colour scheme and shades of derelict walls, forcing the onlooker to make an effort and “search” for the picture in/on the wall.

Transumanze is an artistic video project on the go. Carried out between March and September in Sicily, a region of southern Italy, in 2019.

It is a work of artistic research on micro-migration, on the depopulation of small villages, on the abandonment of local traditions, and on the fragile link between man and nature. This project was fueled by anthropological research, meetings, paintings, murals and video interviews to create a documentary.
