Carlito Dalceggio’s openness and inclusive approach made him an obvious choice of artist for this mural. Through the vivid and whimsical use of universal iconography he explores themes that are dear to him, such as peace and harmony among people. Carlito Dalceggio wanted to contribute to the beautification of their environment and painted every day alongside the artist, decorated the pavement with chalk, wall was covered in graffiti, the target of vandalism and the merchants wanted to bring a creative and colorful solution to the problem.
