Street art, firstly considered part of an underground culture, is becoming a vector of urban regeneration in many institutional programs for the recovery of suburbs and degraded areas. It rises
very fast to the fore, often in discussions and aesthetic controversy, the form of urban art welcomes many shades: from writing, murals, to stencils, to tags.
Some graffiti, if carried out with permission, can be considered real art forms while degrading private buildings or public spaces is pure vandalism and as such legally punishable. This trend, however, is steadily decreasing, and collaborative examples are more and more frequent.
The incredible power of expression of Street Art, with the ability to get to areas difficult to reach with other art forms, is able to greatly amplify the message that you want to express, and get in there where institutions are lacking. In this respect, collaboration between street artists and institutional system becomes desirable and, indeed, flourishing, going to unleash the full potential of this modern art form, recognizing its merits.
Bologna has recently dealt with this collaboration with the project “A bridge in color”. An aerosol art program has upgraded the famous Pontevecchio of the city that crosses the streets of Levante and Mazzini and houses the Bologna-Prato line, along with the Bologna Mazzini metro stop. To subdue the arches of the bridge to degradation, RFI and the City of Bologna – Savena District joined the Bolognese Tinte Forti association, which brings together some of the most famous writers and committed to promoting this discipline as a tool to make it more beautiful and livable Urban spaces. After two weeks of work and 320 spray cans, they returned to the city a cheerful, cleaner space. The first phase of a larger project has been completed, which will also include the bridge structure walls that have not yet been upgraded.
