SANBA, now in its second edition, continues his attempt to experience the interconnection between contemporary art and social complexity in the suburbs. For the excellent results of the previous edition and for the desire to strengthen the relations and dynamics initiated, WALLS again elects San Basilio, a complex neighborhood located northeast of Rome, for the 2015 edition of the project. The intervention methodology established by WALLS is expressed through two distinct but interrelated phases: workshops in schools about art literacy and to understand of the role of public art in urban requalification and public art interventions on the facades of the neighborhood, which are a reminder of the lived experience and the changes promoted.
SANBA 2015 was attended by Hitnes, an italian artist selected for its ability to read the context in which he operates, which has been assigned the task of creating on the 6 sides of an abandoned square an impressive work of public art, which now is part of the new aesthetic of the neighborhood.
The goal of SANBA is to continue to operate in the suburbs, offering itself as a model of intervention in the territories through public art, is an attempt to transform complex neighborhoods in new poles of cultural spread.
