A first stroke of paint on a brick wall in the middle of the night. An abstract image, a few words. What started with a silent political protest has run out of control. Decades later this little village that could have been named after a kind of pasta is filled with expressive murals.
After seeing most of the more than 170 paintings with different themes ranging between local government, Silvio, global issues and Obama. Zeitgeist. we get the impression that Picasso might still be alive. Cubism. On out way into the village we stopped at an abandoned monastery. Buzzing bee hives and a rather sinister atmosphere. Sardinia is not Italy. Orgosolo, a heavy local place with its own inspiring story. A must visit if you are around in the area!
