The Antonio Giordano Prize, an urban art project, has changed the face of Santa Croce di Magliano, the small town in the province of Campobasso. Wonderful open-air works created by national and international artists. Discover the murals.
It is not the first time that we talk about street art in Molise, from Campobasso to Civitacampomarano. Now we are talking about another interesting project, in Santa Croce di Magliano, a small town in the province of Campobasso.
The Antonio Giordano Prize was born in honor of the Molise artist from whom it takes its name. Antonio Giordano, born in 1943 in Santa Croce di Magliano, was a multifaceted artist, lover of art in all its forms. Sculptor and painter exponent of the Transavanguardia, he died in 2013.
Her daughter Marianna decided to honor his memory by designing an urban art festival.
Writers from all over the world collected the invitation, painting on the city walls and transforming Santa Croce di Magliano into a real artist residence. Artists of the caliber of Millo, Zed1, MrThoms, Alberonero, Francisco Bosoletti, Camilla Falsini, Giulio Vesprini, Guerrilla Spam, 108, Nemo’s, Nelio, Robocoop, Basik, Soda, Alexey Luka, Nicola Alessandrini or Andrea Casciu, each with their own specific language.
The works can also be viewed online: two maps (with Google Maps and Streetartcities) allow you to locate and view the murals.
