FESTIWALL STREET ART FESTIVAL - RAGUSA

During the FestiWall Street Art Festival in Ragusa (Sicily), Pixelpancho paid tribute to people who – in the past as nowadays – work as oranges pickers. This work has its roots in a distant past: at the end of the Nineteenth century, there was a huge social gradient between the Regno delle due Sicilie (Kingdom of the two Sicilies) and the rest of Italy. Orange, which is considered an Italian excellence, is also the symbol of the basification of society. The Borbones destroyed the cultivated fields and planted oranges throughout the Southern territory, in order to base the economy of the area. Years later, oranges become the symbol of the immigration, the only thing an immigrate has to support himself. Or, more often, to try it.
