Ale Senso’s 2287 square meter mural

Last June we first reported on SAB Project (Street Art Ball Project), a new urban regeneration project involving five Italian street artists who were commissioned to create urban artwork on five basketball courts in the province of Bergamo.
Now the SAB Project has moved south, to the seafront in San Vito lo Capo, where Ale Senso has worked incessantly for 26 days on the work entitled “Quiete“. 

The Italian street artist has embarked on a feat that still seems impossible: she has created a 2287 square metre work of floor art covering an area that includes a basketball court, a football pitch and a volleyball court and is located just a stone’s throw from the beach. 

Ale Senso

Ale Senso decided to represent the earth and the sea through a visual metaphor: two figures, one sand-coloured and one sky-blue, embrace each other and become one. These two elements, earth and sea, celebrate the union of different elements and the awareness of being part of a whole that goes beyond the individual elements. 

In order to complete the project, the street artist enlisted the help of exceptional helpers. The creation of “Quiet” was in fact sponsored by the municipality of San Vito Lo Capo and made possible thanks to the technical support of @chimiver and the help of the community of San Vito lo Capo and the students of the Liceo Artistico Michelangelo Buonarroti R. Salvo in Trapani and the IPSOA Istituto Alberghiero Vincenzo e Ignazio Florio in Erice.

In short, a work made by the community for the community.
