TERRITORY AND SOCIAL REDEMPTION
Yourban2030 continues its ethical mission, of valorising the territory and social redemption, returning to propose a work of street art in the name of the environment, entrusting the walls of the Gym of Legality to two brands of excellence, Solo and Diamond street artists.
A meeting between ethical and aesthetic excellence, of virtuous examples, is what was presented on February 26 -2020 in the structure of the Roman coast, to celebrate the first year of the gym redeemed by the Lazio Region to the mafia and returned to the territory.
The air-purifying mural was inaugurated in the space located in the 1,200 m2 building in Ostia. And being the room destined for boxing, he could only appear on the wall: a 4x4 Tiger Man, to tell about sport as a tool for training, education, rebirth, integration ... but also as a fight against poverty, support for the weaker sections , a vehicle for social inclusion.
Veronica De Angelis
"Yourban2030" said President Veronica De Angelis "wishes to donate this artistic intervention within the space of the gym of Legality in support of the extraordinary work done, because these are the gyms of life that allow you to get out of the street reality. Open and inclusive spaces, which welcome and save. Just as there is a gym of legality, our dream - and our message with this work by Solo and Diamond - is to give life to the gyms of culture, with free access to art, in which to train to beauty, even for those who don't have the chance. For those who cannot afford it, because beauty, like sport, can speak to souls and represent an alternative, real, concrete and tangible to change their destiny ".
"I do not count the victories but the defeats that I have won": this is how champion Emanuele Blandamura declared several times. “Sport saved my life, taught me to live. Sport is value, it taught me everything, and I would like this mural to speak to institutions and at the same time to children. To the institutions to say how much initiatives such as those of the Legality Gym go far beyond sport, touching the social growth of a territory and its community. To young people to testify how sport can be an alternative to the more destructive vocations of which they are often victims. Never give in to the easier choice that the road offers us, but fight to overcome ourselves ... and win our defeats ".
